The Annual Arpa International Film Festival (Arpa IFF) has come to be recognized as one of the leading indie film festivals in Los Angeles. The festival’s mission has always been to cultivate cultural understanding and global empathy by creating a dynamic forum for international cinema. Over the past two decades, the festival has bridged cultural divides by fostering dialogue among people of diverse backgrounds. By showcasing local and international films that explore critical issues such as war, genocide, diaspora, dual identities, exile and multiculturalism, Arpa IFF has solidified its role in safeguarding films that continue to make a social impact.
This year's 22st anniversary will once again feature a dynamic set of international and local films. The festival will take place November 8 to 10 at the historic Legion Theater, Hollywood. For more information, visit: www.ArpaFilmFestival.com
