The 5th Annual DC Palestinian Film and Arts Festival
October 1, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - October 4, 2015 @ 9:00 pm
The Institute for Policy Studies proudly joins the fifth annual DC Palestinian Film and Arts Festival (DCPFAF), which will run from October 1 to October 4, 2015. This year’s program includes an opening reception, several feature-length and short films, in addition to panels with filmmakers, photographers and novelists.
The four day festival will kick off with the Washington, DC premiere of Amer Shomali and Paul Cowan’s critically acclaimed film, The Wanted 18, at E Street Cinema (555 11th St, NW WDC 20004) on Thursday, October 1 at 7 PM. A reception and Q&A with co-director Amer Shomali will follow the screening. The Wanted 18 tells the story of a Palestinian village’s defiance, ingenuity and resilience during the 1987 intifada. Shomali and Cowan bring the one-of-a-kind story to life through a unique combination of stop-motion animation, interviews, drawings and archival material. Most recently, the film won Best Documentary Film Award at Michael Moore’s Traverse City Film Festival in early August.
