Get ready to experience the rich tapestry of Palestinian culture through the lens of captivating films at the inaugural Nordic Palestinian Film Festival (NPFF), taking place on March 22-24/3 at Folket Bio Panora, Malmö

Founded by filmmakers passionate about Palestine and the power of cinema, the NPFF offers a unique platform for Nordic audiences to connect with Palestinian stories and perspectives. Unlike the often impersonal nature of news reports, films allow for deeper engagement, fostering empathy and understanding.

The festival transcends political and religious affiliations, serving as a non-profit organization dedicated to cultural exchange. Its central mission is to:

Raise awareness in Nordic countries about Palestinian history and culture.

Introduce Nordic audiences to the vibrant tapestry of Palestinian life.

Connect Nordic and Palestinian communities through the shared language of cinema.

Beyond screenings, the NPFF fosters dialogue and collaboration between Nordic and Palestinian communities. The festival brings together filmmakers, musicians, and poets to celebrate Palestinian culture and explore shared experiences.

The festival’s impact extends beyond entertainment:

Supporting young Palestinian filmmakers: Proceeds from the NPFF empower emerging talents, particularly those in Gaza, to pursue their cinematic dreams.

Bridging language barriers: Subtitling Palestinian films into Nordic languages ensures wider accessibility and deeper understanding within local audiences.

Preserving cinematic heritage: An online database of classic and contemporary Palestinian films becomes a valuable resource for future generations.

Amplifying diverse voices: The NPFF champions the representation of Palestinians and other minorities, celebrating their contributions to Nordic society.

Join the NPFF for a cinematic journey that transcends borders and sparks meaningful conversations. Immerse yourself in Palestinian stories, explore shared humanity, and celebrate the power of cultural exchange.
