Palestinian Voices | Beyond Resilience

Firelight Media's Beyond Resilience Series, with support from Field of Vision, is proud to be a community partner for the Arab Film & Media Institute's (AFMI) 'Palestinian Voices' program. The program, which is live now throughout the end of November 2023, features films about Palestine playing in-person and online.


Our Beyond Resilience series explores how, from the beginning of artistic practice, documentation and cinema have been used by filmmakers, in partnership with their communities, to weather periods of deep crisis. In this dire time, we join AFMI and their community partners in sharing a selection of films that showcase the history, culture, and people of Palestine.

⁠⁠'Palestinian Voices' will run through the entire month of November. You can watch most of the films in this series online and from anywhere in the world. A few titles are limited to viewers in the United States. Thank you to AFMI and our fellow community partners for supporting this program.
