Le 3rd Palestine Film Festival.

Madrid Palestine Film Festival is an independent film festival. During its last two editions/years, we have worked on a volunteer basis covering the expenses of the film festival with public sponsorship/public aid/government support. This year due to the financial situation in Spain we need your support. Your contribution will allow us to cover screening rights, publicity, travel expenses of Palestinian filmmakers to Madrid and translations of their public talks.

Madrid Palestine Film Festival 2012

Palestinian cinema, a world of fragments

A film is a world of fragments, says Godard. And Palestine is a world of fragments as well. We should keep looking at those worlds with the hope that our eyes and dreams go further and beyond.

What do we do?

Over the last two years nearly 100 films have been screened at Madrid Palestine Film Festival, and more than twenty Palestinian films will be screened this year. Filmoteca Española will host this event in November and December 2012. This festival once again creates a space for coming together and finding the wealth that this cinema offers us, a cinema that always has more life, through a people who are demonstrating their culture, their artistic innovation and diversity out of their oppression.

We invite you to be a part of this project; a project full of reality, soul and future. We would like you to be proud of taking part in something alive, real, and which allows us to experience the creative resistance of a people through the eyes of their own filmmakers, through their creations and testimonials. In order that we might not be deprived, cinema makes Palestine visible. This year the festival will focus on fiction films by Elia Suleiman, Michel Khleifi, Hany Abu Assad, Tawfik Abu Wael, Ali Nassar, Rashid Masharawi, Annamarie Jacir, Cherien Dabis, Najwa Najjar and many others.
