Leeds Palestinian Film Festival 2021: Behind the Headlines
12 Nov 2021 - 3 Dec 2021

The 7th Leeds Palestinian Film Festival will take place live across venues in Leeds from 12th November – 3rd December 2021, alongside an online programme of short films available to view worldwide.

This year’s festival theme is Behind the Headlines, with a programme of events demonstrating the history and present-day reality of Palestinians that remain hidden behind the recent coverage of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. 

The festival ambition has always been to show outstanding, thought-provoking and compelling films that showcase Palestinian narratives and challenge audiences’ perceptions and views. This year’s programme comprises an eclectic blend of contemporary fiction and documentary cinema plus a retrospective of work by multi-award winning filmmaker Anne Paq both online and offline.
