ArteEast’s ArteArchive consists of over 2500+ films and videos by artists from the MENA region, collected over the course of the organization’s 15+ years of film programming.

ArteEast seeks to preserve and make publicly available these important works.

These programs are part of two broader thematic series from the Kevorkian Center titled Digital Forays and Global Uprising.
