Palestinian Film Festival – 7 to 17 March 2024
March 7 - March 17
Honouring Palestinian Resilience
There’s never been a more important and urgent time to hear Palestinian voices and share Palestinian stories as there is right now.
Join us from 7-17 March 2024 for the very best of Palestinian cinema from around the globe and get to know more about Palestine through films in your local community.
From the Festival organisers…
The start of 2024 has seen continued horrors and hardship inflicted on the people of Gaza and Palestine; war crimes and criminal offences that the rest of the so-called civilised and progressive world, somehow, seem powerless to stop. It begs the question: What does free and equal, and fair and just, even mean anymore?
What the start of 2024 has shown us, however, is the Palestinian people’s unbreakable spirit. In the face of unspeakable and unimaginable adversity every day since 1948, the Palestinian people have consistently shown the world what it means to be steadfast and resilient. Our pay our respects to the Palestinian people for their love and commitment to life and culture, as well as to indigenous rights and aspirations. We can learn so much from their strength.
It is in honour of this Palestinian strength of spirit that we announce the return of the Palestinian Film Festival Australia. We will be screening the postponed 2023 festival, which was regrettably delayed due to the war on Gaza and Palestine. It is our collective responsibility to remember and share Palestinian stories and perspectives, and to celebrate Palestinian life and culture.”
