Dear friends, 


The 9th annual Boston Palestine Film Festival opens on Friday, October 16. This year’s festival features some new and exceptional programming in addition to our 10-day festival:

  • The Map Is Not the Territory, a curated art exhibit exploring parallels between Palestinian, Native American, and Irish cultures and histories runs September 4 thru November 5 at the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center (Gala Opening Reception: September 17)
  • Palestinians, Live! a StorySLAM show featuring local Palestinians telling their own life stories in a cabaret setting (October 24)

The full festival program will be announced soon.

Recently, Palestinian narratives have begun to gain international attention as unique representations of extraordinary human suffering and resilience, and they are increasingly sought after and anticipated. Against all odds and under extreme adversity, more and more young people from Palestine and beyond are determined to convey their stories as Palestinians through the lens. These creative efforts deserve to be widely seen and shared.

Since our festival was founded in 2007, in partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, we have screened nearly 350 films, including several Oscar nominees. We’ve also put on more than 15 non-film events in less than 10 years at prestigious venues across the city of Boston, including concerts, art exhibits, poetry readings, and discussion panels.

Your support makes this happen. Only a small fraction of our annual Festival budget comes from ticket sales. Other than grants, the majority comes from individuals like you whose contributions ensure that the festival can be sustained.

Help us make our unparalleled Palestinian narratives known. 

Any amount helps. We appreciate your generosity in gifts of any size.

Hope to see you at the festival!
