The films, which are currently being shown in C?rdoba, include "The Tainted Veil" by Emirati director Nahla Al Fahad, Syrian director Mazen Al Khayrat, and British director Ovidio Salazar, and the films, "Hamama" and "Nearby Sky," by Emirati director Nujoom Alghanem, as well as "Dar Al Hay" by Emirati director Ali Mustafa, and "Nanny Culture" by British director Paul James, which is based on a story by Sheikha Alyazia bint Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan that revealed the lives of British nannies in the UAE.

The Casa Arabe’s main goal is to consolidate the overall relations between Spain and Arab countries through cultural, educational, scientific and economic activities, as well as to promote knowledge, information, analysis, dialogue and discussion about Arab communities.
