Who we are?
For over 15 years, the Lebanese Film Festival (LFF) has been discovering,
encouraging and fostering the best of independent Lebanese film talent both in
Lebanon and abroad.
We do what we do because we believe that Lebanese Cinema needs to be celebrated!
Now in its 12th edition, LFF has grown into one of the leading and longest-running
film events in the country, welcoming an increasing audience of film lovers to
discover a selection of various independent Lebanese films.
In short, we are happy to welcome around 6500 spectators to watch over 50 films and are covered in 167 press articles.
Why do we need you?
In the midst of a very unstable political situation, added to the local garbage crisis, it
seems like a film festival is exactly what we need.
We believe that sustaining a leading cultural event is vital to the country’s well being and the healthy development of its artists.
It is important to give a different -creative yet powerful, voice to filmmakers and continue supporting their works, especially in their own country.
This year, due to the factors that lead to a deteriorated economic situation, our usual funding channels are suffering severe budget cuts.
This means that they are not able to support us with the amount we need to make our festival happen.
This is why we need YOU!
Today, it is up to you, the film lover, the filmmaker, the artist, the Lebanese, the
Arab, the international film passionate, the one who believes in culture... to keep the
With YOUR support, we will make the 12th edition of the Lebanese Film Festival a reality; it will happen despite all the challenges because we believe in you.
Be ready for some laughs and some tears! Help us achieve our goal!
