The EU in Jordan supports the 1st edition of Amman International Film Festival
August 25, 2020
The European Union in Jordan supports the 1st edition of Amman International Film Festival (AIFF). Top quality Arab and international movies will be screened between 23 August and 2 September in Amman at three Drive-in theatres in New Abdali and the Royal Film Commission.
Europe is well represented with 19 co-productions screened every single day of the Festival.
In the midst of exceptional circumstances, the inaugural edition of the AIFF kicked off on 23 August 2020, in the presence of some 400 attendees. The Festival, originally scheduled to open last April in front of a large theatre audience, was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In order to keep the Festival in motion without resorting to online screenings and while cinema theatres are still closed, the organisers had to find a creative solution that would respect social distancing rules. The AIFF is the first ever drive-in film festival in Jordan and the region.
