The DC Palestinian Film and Arts Festival (DC-PFAF) is a volunteer-run project organized by the DC chapter of the US Palestinian Community Network (USPCN-DC) in Washington, DC to showcase the work of Palestinian filmmakers and artists. It is the first effort of its kind in DC to shine the spotlight solely on Palestinian filmmakers.
The stories told in this festival 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.
This project aims to bring DCs various communities closer together through art, and catalyze invigorating discussions about film and culture using the lens of Palestinian filmmakers as an entry point.
This festival is a tribute to the tremendous work produced by Palestinian artists living under occupation and/or throughout a global diaspora.
