Palestine Film Festival, Boston, Oct. 20-29, 2017

The Boston Palestine Film Festival is now accepting film submissions for our eleventh annual film festival, which will be co-presented with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and take place October 20-29, 2017 at the MFA and venues across Boston. BPFF annually showcases works by independent filmmakers that provide insight into the extraordinary narrative of a dispossessed people. Cinema and arts offer a powerful means of interpreting the collective identity, historic struggle, and surreal life circumstances and challenges that Palestinians throughout the world presently face.

All accepted films will be eligible to win our annual Audience Awards, which go to the films receiving the highest number of audience votes for Best Narrative Feature and Best Documentary Feature.
