Palestinian films via SBS On Demand! We’re thrilled to share that four films previously screened at the Palestinian Film Festival Australia will be available via SBS Demand and SBS TV throughout 2019. Keep an eye on SBS over the next few weeks for more information about the following fabulous films:
1948: Creation & Catastrophe documentary release The most-watched film in the 2018 Palestinian Film Festival Australia was, without doubt, 1948: Creation & Catastrophe.
“It is simply not possible to make sense of what is happening in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict today without an understanding of 1948. This documentary was the last chance for many of its Israeli and Palestinian characters to narrate their first-hand accounts of the creation of a state and the expulsion of a nation.”
We are working through the classification process to have the documentary 1948: Creation & Catastrophe available in Australia for online streaming and purchase.
The documentary is available to universities staff and students through Kanopy Network to access it Click here.
For any additional public screenings, please contact the Palestinian Film Festival Australia

WBT addresses the following questions:
1. Industrial question: The Master/servant relationship. The struggle for Worker Control.
2. Ownership question: Who owns the land or does the land own us? Rights to the city, right to country. The struggle of indigenous people for land rights and social justice in Australia.
3. Political question: This is the class struggle. Who owns the means of production? Who governs? How are democratic rights won and shared.
