The Palestine

Film Festival

The Idea of the Festival:

The Palestine Film Festival aims primarily to promote and develop the Palestinian film industry, and to motivate young filmmakers from all over the world to work in order to produce films that support and portray the true image of the Palestinian cause. The festival features several events and activities which will be concluded by the end of the festival by awarding the winners of the best films the Creativity Award for Palestine.

The Creativity Award is allocated to several categories, which are determined by the festival each year. The winners are selected through multiple qualifying stages under the supervision of international arbitration committees, each specialized in their fields.
