Mec Film

mec film is a distribution company for films exclusively from the Middle East and North Africa. On the background of ongoing debates about the region - religion, Islamism 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, medium, and feature length documentary and fiction films - without compromising their artistic quality.
