Join us for a screening & discussion of short films by filmmakers responding to Queer Palestinians’ calls to boycott TLVFest.
The Queer Cinema for Palestine film festival, taking place from Nov. 11-20, is a global response to queer Palestinians’ calls to boycott th TLVFilm Fest. 50 filmmakers have pulled their films from TLVFest and 200 have pledged to boycott the event. We bring QCP to Philly by screening short films from some of these artists at The Rotunda on Nov. 19.
Tickets will be on a pay-what-you-can basis. Donations will go to filmmakers and artists whose work we are featuring in the event and panel.
Full film line-up:
