Friends of the Festival

We are grateful for the support of our friends. These people are offering long standing support, encouragement, inspiration and wisdom.

Richard Burgon MP

Richard Burgon is a Labour Party MP for Leeds East. He is also the Shadow Secretary of State for Justice and Shadow Lord Chancellor.

“I’m proud to be a Friend of the Leeds Palestinian Film Festival. The Leeds Palestinian Film Festival helps to give a voice to Palestinians and, amongst other things, shows the day-to-day realities of life in the occupied territories. As someone who has visited the occupied territories in order to meet with, and listen to, Palestinians who suffer daily injustice at the hands of the Government of Israel, I believe initiatives like the Leeds Palestinian Film Festival are a vital part of linking us all through our common humanity.”
