Boston Palestine Film Festival
The Boston Palestine Film Festival (BPFF) is an annual film festival held in Boston, MA that was established in 2007. The festival brings Palestine-related cinema, narratives, and culture to New England audiences with the mission to "showcase the extraordinary narrative and culture of Palestinians through cinema and art." The twelfth annual festival took place October 19–28, 2018.
Run by volunteers and co-presented by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, BPFF features documentaries, features, rare early works, video art pieces, as well as new films by emerging artists and youth. The selected works from directors around the world offer views of Palestine and its history, culture, and geographically dispersed society.
Each year, guest filmmakers from various countries and expert commentators are invited to be part of the festival and discuss their work with audiences. Since its founding in 2007, BPFF has presented over 300 Palestine-related films, as well as numerous major concerts, workshops, and art exhibits.
