The trophy was handed to Moroccan actress Nadia Kounda who played the leading role in this movie.

Malmö Arab Film Festival works as an intercultural platform for diversity and tolerance. As one of the largest film festivals with the focus on Arab cinema, outside of the Arab world, the festival offers a meeting ground for the Nordic and Arab film industries.

The festival was founded in 2011 by the general manager and artistic director Mouhamad Keblawi. Evolving from a grassroot movement the festival was initiated through a need, in Malmö and Sweden, for a space that would share and explore the Arab culture.

MAFF is an intercultural meeting place, a place for discourse and bridge-building between people and cultures.   

Around 120 features, short films and documentaries from all over the world are screened during the festival. There are also competition sections, panoramas, retrospectives, special screenings, workshops, seminars and celebrations.
