Surrey Palestine Film Festival
A brand-new film festival celebrating Palestinian film, arts, and culture.
This is a full day event with a carefully chosen programme of features, shorts and documentary films from a variety of critically acclaimed filmmakers. In addition, you will be able to taste the cuisine of Palestine through a selection of delicious finger foods and be entertained by live Middle Eastern instrumental music. Linking the story of Christmas to its origins in Palestine, we will also have stalls showcasing artisanal, handcrafted, and fine food products offering you a wide array of unique gifts for your loved ones.
The films are heartwarming, thought provoking and offer a glimpse into the multi-faceted nature of Palestine, its culture, and its people.
A day for film enthusiasts, those who know, or want to learn about this little understood part of the Middle East, Christmas shoppers looking for unique gifts and families & friends who want an immersive experience of Palestinian culture.
