Boston Palestinian Film Festival

Fri October 18, 2019 - Sun October 27, 2019

Boston Palestinian Film Festival

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.

Each year, guest filmmakers from various countries and expert commentators add contextual depth to the films. BPFF also offers ancillary cultural programming including concerts by Palestinian musicians and art exhibits by or about Palestinians.
