Join our workshop on Palestinian filmmaking on Saturday, August 27 in Malmitalo, 2-4 pm!

Palestinian and Finnish media artist, illustrator, and filmmaker Shareef Askar will present a talk on Palestinian filmmaking and cinema accompanied by film excerpts.
During Shareef’s talk, we’ll have a look at the historical progress of Palestinian films and moreover what cinema as means of expression meant to the Palestinian case and Palestinians themselves. We will also consider aspects and styles that have shaped Palestinian filmmaking as a storytelling structure with various clips of movies that have made a profound impact globally and even on Shareef inspiring him to become an aspiring filmmaker.
