Mafloum is a fast-made independent film festival, relying on films that were made spontaneously and with simple preparations. We try in Mafloum to select films that have been made by professional filmmakers or multimedia production professional workers who want to make quick films and test this experience and also try to keep a large space for new filmmakers and people who are interested in expressing themselves through Films.
In Mafloum, we try to escape as much as possible from the rules and intricacies of production and the cinematographic and visual industry codes and templates in general, and our focus on the story or the simple story with a little randomness and Fast made Films, and free from production rules pressures also by maintaining a level of quality and to try to test our cinematic instinct Or our instinct of storytelling
