Cinema Akil has announced the return of Reel Palestine’s annual film festival which will run from January 18 – 26 2019. Films will be screened at Cinema Akil’s permanent venue at Alserkal Avenue in Dubai. Reel Palestine will also be screening at Warehouse 421 in Abu Dhabi.
This festival will kick off with its biggest programme to date, bringing more than two screenings per day, talks, a market of Palestinian crafts and flavours, among other initiatives.
The not-for-profit and volunteer-based organisation was set up by group of friends in Dubai in 2014 and launched its first pop-up festival in January 2015 with the purpose of showing Palestinian culture and tenacity through film.
