Hummus und Popcorn

26th to 29th August

When Hummus meets Popcorn again... in August 2021!

For four years we have been working on this film festival in close cooperation with Filmlab Palestine and the Gesellschaft Schweiz Palästina. Over the years we have grown in experience and supporters. 

The aim of Palestine Arts is to bring Palestinian art and realities closer to an interested audience. We want to offer Palestinian artists a platform for their works, ideas and visions. Human rights, democracy and diversity are our main focus.

Over four days we present you films created by and with Palestinians throughout Palestine and in the Diaspora. There are new and older films that will surprise you and take you on a journey! Some of the films have not yet found their way to the Swiss screens. Once again we present you a short film program you can look forward to. The short films are very important for Palestinians, appear in an enormous diversity and come mainly from the occupied territories. The challenging situation of artists in Palestine leads to a densification of stories that are unique in content and symbolism. Don't miss how great stories are told in just a few minutes!

Also this year we invite artists and other personalities from Palestine to the festival. Who will come live or via the screen is still to be decided. Together with them we will create exciting Q&As and invite you to join us. We want to enable you as a spectator to have a direct exchange with artists.
