The International Young filmmakers Festival was launched in 2011 to create the tradition of showcasing diverse short films of all kinds made by young directors from all over the world. The success of festival encouraged us to launch the second festival in 2013 which was even more successful. The screening of 35 short films took place in a variety of locations in the West Bank, Jerusalem and Gaza.
Third International Young Filmmakers Festival is a step forward from the first two festivals. It was open for participation for all youth under thirty years old from all over the world. Its main aim is to support young filmmakers in Palestine in their attempt to express themselves through the language of film. The festival offered them a special platform to show their films to the public and get direct feedback from professionals, media and audience.
The fourth festival was launched in September 2017, it took place in the same screening venues like previous ones.
The fifth festival will be launched on September 2018.
