Film: Voice’s of the struggle.

palestinefilmfestivalpost

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!

CALLING ALL WRITERS AND WEB DESIGNERS! PALESTINE VOICE MAGAZINE! INTERESTED?

We are looking for journalist, photographers, and those to interview for our new online Palestinian Voice Magazine!

 

I have been thinking about it recently, and I think it’s a great way for us all to get out voices out there..

 

The magazine will be called “Palestinian Voice,” and depending on how many articles come in, we can figure out how often were going to put out a new issue.

 

The magazine will not only discuss current politics, but culture, music, history, fashion, sports, up and comings, Palestinians, successful Palestinians, what Palestinians are doing for Palestine etc.

(If you can think of anything else that would be great!)

 

We don’t want this paper to be offensive at all, just clearly putting the knowledge and the facts out there. (So no “Falasteen ibladna ow al yahood klabna stuff ha-)

We want this to be, sound and look professional.

 

IF YOU’RE A PHOTOGRAPHER! Submit your photos!

IF YOU’RE A SINGER! Let us know! So we can have an interview with you, and links to your music pages!

IF YOU’RE AN ARTIST! Send them in!

IF YOU’RE A COMEDIAN! Tell us!

 

If you do anything at all that you’re proud of tell us! If you know anyone that would be great to interview, who is making an impact on Palestinian life, and culture in any way let us know!

We love to help get the word out about your success, and help you succeed even further, and don’t be shy to ask us for an interview either, if you want to get out there, don’t be shy of anything…

 

So if you love to write, if you love to talk about Palestine, if you generally know what you’re talking about… feel free to Email us, and we would love to get you in there!

 

We are also looking for some one who knows html, and how to webdesign to put the online magazine all together! We are currently working with formatpixel.com, if you know of a better publishing site feel free to let us know.
