Jordan in general, and Amman in particular, has long been an important meeting point for art, history and culture, merging the past, present and future. As the host of the Amman international Film Festival- Awal Film, Amman will carry this legacy forward, in the hope of fostering regional and international talent. Amman is considered one of the most modernized Arab cities, with everything from shopping centers with world brands, luxurious hotels, international restaurants, modern infrastructure and telecommunications system to the bustling souks of downtown, the cobbled walkways and art galleries of the first circle and the jasmine scented neighborhood of Lweibdeh, where nothing beats enjoying a cup of Turkish coffee as the sun sets over the charming neighborhoods of old Amman.
The Festival will be hosted in the Abdali district, with its state-of-the art theaters, five-stars hotels, multiple cafés and restaurants, pedestrian area all within a walking distance from the theaters and the festival’s main venues.

Amman is a city of contrasts and so there’s something in it for everyone, for every age group and interest. Whether you’re looking for the arts and culture scene, a glimpse into history, an unparalleled food experience or the vibrant nightlife, Amman has you covered.
