Palestine in Film

To commemorate the 64th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC), a US Campaign coalition member, announced the online publication of a guide to Palestinian film and film making. It features information on and access to hundreds of films and film institutions, giving an unprecedented overview of almost every aspect of Palestinian film making.
This filmography provides detailed information on individual narrative and documentary films by and about Palestinians. Films included are both full length and short. Their subject matter deals with Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, in Israel and in exile around the world. The guide also has links to films, trailers, websites, articles, publications, film festivals and film distributors.
Make sure to check it out and use the films as part of your work to change U.S. policy toward Israel/Palestine to support human rights, international law and equality.
