Exploring a network of spaces

In the framework of our 11-days-long programme LET'S SIT DOWN TOGETHER AND TALK ABOUT A LITTLE CULTURE,  we cordially invite you to join us for a conversation with NAAS  |  Network of Arab Alternative Screens – a dear partner in our longterm project United Screens.

NAAS and its members hold a distinctive and crucial position. A constellation of spaces not only embraces alternative practices and voices but also maintains grassroots connections with the communities that form the core audienceship of a different kind of screen(s). Join us in a dialogue delving into the NAAS network, exploring its practices and interactions, as we chronicle our reflections, thoughts, challenges, and successes.

Established more than ten years ago, NAAS is a network of a growing constellation of initiatives and spaces that maintain community around film. With a belief in the urgency of alternative narratives and the experience of watching film collectively, NAAS provides opportunities and resources for the cinema sector to cultivate critical thinking and dialogue among audiences across the Arabic-speaking region.
