Screening 'The Idol'

You won't have to miss the Arab Film Festival for one whole year. Because in the spring of 2017, we will screen the film 'The Idol' in cooperation with Erasmus University. This film from Hany Abu-Assad will be screened at the Pavilion of the Erasmus University.

Hope for Palestine

The Idol is the true story about the life of the Palestinian Mohammed Assaf. Against all odds this young singer from Gaza succeeds in winning the television program 'Arab Idol'... Mohammed Assaf won in 2013 the talent show Arab Idol. So by winning he gave hope to the shattered area of Palestine. This beautiful feelgood drama shows his difficult path to his victory.
