Covid-19 and important film festivals
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Palestinian film festivals and other Palestinian film festivals planned in many countries were canceled. As a compensation, some of these festivals give film fans the opportunity to watch films from their program online. For example, the Chicago Palestine Film Festival showed the films "Ave Maria" and "The Idol" via Facebook last week.
Other film festivals opt for postponement. For example, the Festival Ciné-Palestine site states that the festival planned for May is hopefully possible in the fall. See https://www.festivalpalestine.paris/.
The 11th Arab Film Festival Berlin has also opted for postponement, but does not yet mention a new date, see https://alfilm.berlin/en. The same goes for the Haifa Independent Film Festival that was scheduled for March and hopefully can take place this summer, see https://www.haifaiff.com/.
The Houston Palestine Film Festival also opted for postponement; for the new date, see: http://www.hpff.org/.
