The third annual DC Palestinian Film and Arts Festival (DCPFAF) will take place from September 28-October 5, 2013. The eight day festival will feature several short and feature-length films, discussion with the filmmakers, an art exhibit, several receptions, and, tentatively, a dialogue between African American and Arab American media workers.
The DCPFAF aims to highlight Palestinian subjectivity through cinema, music, and other forms of visual arts. The stories shared in this festival are not necessarily about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, nor are they necessarily stories about Palestinians, but they are stories told by Palestinians that reflect the dynamic formation of a transnational identity common to Palestinians and diasporic communities in general. Beyond that, this project aims to bring DC's various communities closer together through art, and catalyze invigorating discussions about film and culture using the lens of Palestinian filmmakers as an entry point.
Event begins at 6:00PM
