The Boston Palestine Film Festival (BPFF) is now accepting entries for its fifth annual festival to be held in October of 2011.

BPFF seeks to present the extraordinary narrative of a dispossessed people living in exile, under military occupation and siege, and within Israel. Palestinian cinema represents a powerful means of interpreting the collective identity, historic struggle, and surreal life circumstances and challenges that Palestinians presently face.

ELIGIBILITY

BPFF will showcase the diverse and creative work of all filmmakers (any nationality) exploring both historic and contemporary themes related to Palestinian culture, experience, and narrative.

The BPFF Selection Committee accepts films, videos and digital media in the following categories:
