1:35 PM San Diego Arab Film Festival The San Diego Arab Film Festival announced its line up and schedule for 2019. It will open on April 5 with the Yemeni film 10 Days Before the Wedding, the first commercial film in modern Yemeni history and that country's first submission to the Oscars. Filming under extremely difficult circumstances and with a miniscule budget, director Amr Gamal produced a film that has been greeted enthusiastically by audiences in Yemen and internationally.

10 Days Before the Wedding is one of 9 feature films and 6 shorts that will be featured during the Festival. Like last year, the festival will host 3 screenings at the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park and 7 at the AMC 20 complex at Westfield Mission Valley. Taken together, this year's offerings represent the Festival's broadest and highest quality line up yet.
