Middle Eastern Cinemas
Welcome to mec film!
mec film is an international distribution and sales company for films exclusively from the Middle East and North Africa. On the background of ongoing debates about the region - religion and violence, the role of women, or terror - we want to add a different angle and show films that are made in the Arab World. We represent short and feature length documentary and fiction films - without compromise on artistic quality. The mec film catalogue contains only works by film-makers from the Arab World.
The films in the International Catalogue have English subtitles, sometimes we can provide translation in additional languages.
mec film is serving as agent to the films of renown Syrian film-maker Mohamad Malas. Together with Dunia Film in Damascus we make copies available or connect you to the distributor for your territory.
The movies in the German Catalogue are subtitled in German and are all feature length.
Many titles from the catalogue, as well as selected additional films from the Middle East, are available in our DVD-shop.
In this catalogue you find short and feature length films with English subtitles, sometimes we can provide additional languages. Most films are available in digital formats. more
