It’s a wrap! After a record 6 weeks and 7 cities, the festival has come to an end for 2018. We’d like to thank each and every sponsor, partner, supporter and audience member. Without you, there would be no festival. It was a privilege to share a rich and diverse selection of Palestinian films and to be part of the growing Palestinian film industry. As we remember the 70-year anniversary of Al-Nakba (‘The Catastrophe’), there has never been a more important and urgent time to frame and present the Palestinian narrative on the big screen and for us to continue to remember and share Palestinian stories and perspectives.
Showing in #Adelaide this Saturday night (6:30pm) is the powerful documentary film, 1948: Creation & Catastrophe by Ahlam Muhtaseb & Andy Trimlett.“Through riveting & moving personal recollections of both Palestinians & Israelis, 1948: Creation & Catastrophe reveals the shocking events of the most pivotal year in one of the most controversial conflict in the world.  It tells the story of the establishment of Israel as seen through the eyes of the people who lived it. But rather than being a history lesson, this documentary is a primer for the present.  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 &  Palestinian characters to narrate their first-hand accounts of the creation of a state & the expulsion of a nation.  Hear stories from the Israelis & Palestinians who personally lived through events in Haifa, Jaffa, Dayr Yasin, Acre, Jerusalem, Ramla, Lydda & more.  These shocking & dramatic events reveal the core of what drives the conflict today.”2018 Palestinian Film Festival Australia

WONDERFUL NEWS: Opening the Palestinian Film Festival Australia in #Adelaide this Friday night is the amazing Amanda Duthie!Amanda is currently the Festival Director/CEO of the Adelaide Film Festival and about to start a new role as the South Australian Film Corporation's Head of Production, Development, Attraction and Studios.
Showing in #Adelaide this Friday night is the beautiful animation film, The Tower by Mats Grorud.“The Tower is an animation feature film, a deeply emotional fiction based on true stories of Palestinian refugees living in camps in Lebanon. The film tells the story of Wardi (11) and her family. It's a story about the unbreakable bond between Wardi and her great-grandfather, and the sacrifice that he makes for her to have a chance for a decent life. The love that family members share for each other and the way they keep hope alive is stronger than the difficulty of life in a refugee camp. The film is based on interviews with Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.”2018 Palestinian Film Festival Australia
