Film Festival 2016

This was our second festival, with a wider array of impressive films covering many aspects of Palestinian society and history, ranging from skateboarding in the West Bank to a hard hitting documentary following an ambulance crew during the 2014 attack on Gaza. We had a great Film and Food night and a couple of fascinating Question and Answer sessions with some of the film producers.

International Women’s Day 2016

For 2016 International Women’s Day, we organised a Taste of Palestine cookery demonstration and discussion at the Cardigan centre on Sunday 6 March.  The cookery demonstration was of two simple Palestinian recipes and there was a slide show illustrating the lives of Palestinian women in the West Bank.

Film Festival 2015

The first Leeds Palestinian Film Festival was our first collection of films from and about Palestine and the Palestinian diaspora, ranging from documentaries to dramas to our favourite of the year, the Claymation “The Wanted 18”. We were pleased to have had Richard Burgon (MP for East Leeds and Shadow Cabinet Member) opening the festival on 15 November, given his long time interest and commitment to Palestine.
