The Jerusalem Fund & Palestine Center
Film is one of the most powerful artistic and educational mediums of our times. It is both a tool of personal expression and a screen for reflection of social and historical issues, as it carries culturally specific and universal themes. Its usefulness in expressing and educating others about the Palestinian issue remains hugely significant in our present day, and for this reason, The Jerusalem Fund runs a seasonal film series throughout the year.
All these films attest to the vibrancy of a Palestinian cinema despite the statelessness and sometimes simultaneous dual nationalities of its filmmakers.
