Palestinian Literature Festival 2013
Published on Jun 1, 2013
A short film shot during three days of the Palestinian Literature Festival 2013 in Nablus, Ramallah and Bir Zeit.
The Palestine Festival of Literature (PalFest) was established in 2008 with the aim of supporting cultural life in Palestine, breaking the cultural siege imposed on Palestinians by the Israeli military occupation and strengthening cultural links between Palestine and the rest of the world.
Since 2008 an annual literary festival has been the center of our activities and we have brought dozens of influential literary figures from the UK, US and Arab world to teach workshops and perform in free public events. We partner with dozens of Palestinian organizations — cultural and educational — to produce an immersive, collaborative festival every year.
Outside of the festival dates we are committed to an ongoing programme of educational work with our partners, the Palestine Writing Workshop. The Workshop is a volunteer led organization that has been offering trainings since November 2009 when it was initiated with PalFest participant Rachel Holmes, as writer in residence.
We work to reaffirm, in the words of Edward Said, ‘the power of culture over the culture of power’
