We at 421 Arts Campus are devastated by the tragic and ongoing crisis in Gaza. As a cultural institution that values artistic practice as a means for social inquiry and transformation, we believe it is crucial to emphasize Palestinian voices at this moment. We encourage our community to take part in a four-day film program that brings to the forefront stories, heritage, and identity of the Palestinian people.


All proceeds from the program will go to the Emirates Red Crescent campaign ‘Tarahum - for Gaza.’


The Palestinian Cinema Days will include feature length-films in the documentary and narrative genres by Palestinian filmmakers and directors based around the world. Presented in collaboration with Reel Palestine and Cinema Akil, the Palestinian Cinema Days champion independent and alternative cinema. 


Screenings will take place in 421 Art Campus’ outdoor plaza from 7:00 pm onwards every evening. The film week runs from October 26 to 29. Films are accessible to all audiences and include subtitles in English and Arabic where applicable. Unless otherwise stated, films are appropriate for audiences of all ages.
