2012 London Palestine Film Festival
The 2012 London Palestine Film Festival organised by the Palestine Film Foundation will take place from the 20th April to 3rd May in various venues, London, UK. For this year’s edition a total of 41 films will be shown, by directors working internationally in all genres: documentary, fiction, art, short films and animation work by, about and from Palestinians and their country.

This year, the festival will feature films tracing a history of nearly a hundred years of film on Palestine, exploring the British colonial film archives but also plenty of contemporary works.

In addition to book launches, artist talks, an exhibition on Palestinian video art, with contributions from more than a dozen key figures, including Basma Alsharif, Ayreen Anastas, Mona Hatoum, Khalil Rabah, Larissa Sansour, Elia Suleiman, and Sharif Waked will be organised.
