This year’s Festival program focuses on the power of storytelling and in particular, the sharing of untold stories. Through the telling and sharing of stories, we are transported across time, place and culture and presented with new and fresh perspectives, experiences and connections. Film has the power to bring people together, celebrating our common interests and shared values. These experiences are at the heart of the Palestinian Film Festival – and our privilege to be able to share these with Australian communities.We look forward to seeing you at the festival.
WAJIB – THE WEDDING INVITATION
The clash between pragmatism and idealism turns acute in Annemarie Jacir’s father-son drama “Wajib,” an intimate, well-played disquisition on what it means to be a Palestinian abroad versus a Palestinian at home.
1948: CREATION & CATASTROPHE
Through riveting and moving personal recollections of both Palestinians and Israelis, 1948: Creation & Catastrophe reveals the shocking events of the most pivotal year in one of the most controversial conflicts in the world. A must see film.
The Tower is an animation feature film, a deeply emotional fiction based on true stories of Palestinian refugees living in camps in Lebanon. It’s a story about the unbreakable bond with Palestine.
