The art of film, broadcast, documentaries have always been a large interest of mine. Bringing your imagination to life, telling the many stories of the world, and the world’s people is in my opinion; the greatest way to inform the world.
With creativity, that sparks interest with viewers, brings out the imagined, and the imaginable.
Film has been a voice of the Palestinian struggle for some time now. It’s something I believe that should be fully supported by the community, because it’s a powerful voice of now, and WILL be a powerful voice of tomorrow.
Here are some film festivals worth checking out, that are dedicated to the voice of Palestine specifically. And if you’re a film maker why not give it a shot?! Tell your story, or a story of someone else. It’s amazing how powerful it could be if it wins an award or not…BE HEARD!
PALESTINE FILM FOUNDATION
Boston Palestine Film Festival
Toronto Palestine Film Festival
Chicago Palestine Film Festival ***NOTE THIS SITE IS NOT WORKING AT THIS TIME***
London Palestine Film Festival- I couldnt find an offical site for this festival, but they have information on the Palestine Film Foundation site.
Sidney Palestine Film Festival
I am surprised that there are no official festivals dedicated to the stories of Palestine in both New York, and California. Both NY and CA have large populations of Palestinians, and both states are very active when it comes to fighting for the Palestinian struggle, but also when you think of film, well…that is the two places you think of! Who knows, maybe someone might come across this and will start something up!
