The Fez | Directed by Roxxane Shelaby
TFF is thrilled to premiere The Fez! Pre-show performances with musicians and belly dancers and post-show Q&A with the filmmaker and stars make this a must-see event!
Director Producer, Roxxanne Shelaby, a world renowned belly dancer, brings us into the heart of the Golden Era of Hollywood with “The Fez”, the first Restaurant and Nightclub dedicated to the Arab culture on the West Coast.
Opened in 1959 in Hollywood, the legendary Fez not only became a center for the Arabic community in Southern California, but a catalyst for Arab music and dance going on to inspire generations of musicians and dancers well beyond Los Angeles.
The Fez Documentary showcases the insiders view of the first Middle Eastern club in Hollywood where all the classic stars were seen and introduced to Middle Eastern Arts and Culture. Featuring Arabic Music, Belly Dancers, and the best Middle Eastern food in town, The Fez had the hottest musicians and dancers scorching up the dance floor and has become part of Vintage Hollywood history.
