This year’s event, the organizors focused on a significant era for the history of the Palestinian cinema, which is the revolutionary cinema that was created by the ”The Palestinian Libration Organization” in Jordan also, Lebanon in the late sixties in addition, continued until the eighties.
Many western and Arab filmmakers worked in the Palestinian revolutionary cinema and among those the Iraqi writer and filmmaker Kassem Hawal, the director of the feature film ”Returning to Haifa” which is often cited as “the first Palestinian fiction film, based on a novel, written by the Palestinian writer Ghassan Kanafani, produced in 1983 and funded entirely with Palestinian money (collected by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine).
