Call for submissions for LPFF

If you are interested in submitting your film to our 2020 festival we would love to hear from you. The Leeds Palestine Film Festival is open for submissions throughout the year. We aim to shine a light on Palestine – its people, history, culture and society – through showing compelling and thought-provoking films that are not readily available to general audiences in and around Leeds.We show films that:

  • delve beneath one-dimensional views of Palestinian people and politics
  • include documentaries and feature films, rare works and art pieces and are serious and light-hearted, painful and joyful
  • are made by Palestinians and filmmakers internationally, established and emerging
  • have both popular and specialist appeal

Many screenings are enhanced with guest filmmakers and commentators, stalls selling Palestinian produce, food and refreshments and information about ways of supporting the Palestinian people. Where possible our films are ‘pay as you feel’.

If you want to submit for 2020, please contact us by the end of July 2020. As a minimum it would be really helpful for you to send a link to an online screener or DVD. In addition please send any related information about you and the film that we could potentially use to promote the film.We aim to make all programming decisions by the end of August 2020. Because of limited resources we are not able to provide feedback on films submitted. You can contact us via email on
