The Boston Palestine Film Festival (BPFF) brings Palestine-related cinema, narratives, and culture to New England audiences.
The festival features compelling and thought-provoking films, including documentaries, features, rare early works, video art pieces, and new films by emerging artists and youth. These works from directors around the world offer refreshingly honest, self-described, and independent views of Palestine and its history, culture, and geographically dispersed society.
About Our Club
The Syrian American Club is a non-profit, social, cultural, non-political and non-religious entity.
The Syrian American Club is recognized by the IRS as a tax-exempt, 501(c)(7) Social and Recreational Club.
The Club has the following two objectives:
To help preserve the common social and cultural heritage of the members and their families.
To assist the members and their families in dealing with the professional, social, and cultural issues associated in their new environment, particularly upon initial arrival in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
The Syrian American Club welcomes new members and appreciates the support of current members.
Your membership dues go a long way in supporting our Club. Most events are paid for by selling tickets with the remaining balance paid directly from Club funds.
The Club also hosts free events honoring visiting Syrian scholars, artists, authors, athletes, or other celebrities of Syrian or Arab descent.
As a supporting member, you will be contributing to keep in touch with family and friends, meeting new members, and most importantly keeping our heritage alive through social events and gathering. The Club is also a great gathering place for our youngsters in the area, where they feel a sense of belonging and community. The Club can also offer credits towards community service for youngsters who are looking to take part of this vibrant community.
