About Reel Palestine
Reel Palestine is an annual film festival showing a selection of alternative Palestinian films in the United Arab Emirates. The not-for-profit and volunteer-based organization 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, submerging viewers in the beautiful, difficult, emotional, and inspirational moments that occur under occupation.
