The DC Palestinian Film and Arts Festival (DC-PFAF) is a not for profit, volunteer run annual project. It is in its fourth year and aims to showcase the work of Palestinian filmmakers and artists for audiences in Washington, DC and its surrounding areas. It is a unique festival in that the stories told through this project are not necessarily about the Palestinian/Israel conflict, nor are they necessarily stories about Palestinians, but they are stories that reflect the dynamic formation of a transnational identity common to Palestinians and diasporic communities more generally. In Washington, DC, a city filled with communities from around the world, and a city where political decisions are made, we have seen that there is indeed an interested audience for such a project.
The 2014 festival is taking place Thursday 2 October 2014 through Sunday 5 October 2014.
