MIZNA FILM SERIES

Fourth Wednesdays at the Trylon

The Mizna Film Series is a monthly selection of Southwest Asian/North African (SWANA) film programming curated by Mizna, a St. Paul–based, Arab American arts nonprofit that publishes a biannual Arab American literary journal and presents the annual Twin Cities Arab Film Festival each fall. The Mizna Film Series expands Mizna’s regular programming to include repertory screenings, critical essays, filmmaker interviews, and discussions, exploring documentary, narrative, and non-narrative filmmaking practices and aesthetics from the SWANA region and beyond.

The Mizna Film Series screens classic and contemporary works by SWANA artists at the Trylon on the fourth Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m. Ticket prices vary. If you miss a screening, most films are available on Mizna’s virtual cinema following the in-person screening.
