Film Industry Meetup
hosted at Haifa Independent Film Festival HIFF 2018
Organized by Palestine FilM Club
Motivation and Summary
To build and sustain a strong community of filmmakers amongst the Palestinian Film Industry people. Many Palestinian filmmakers, producer, talents and musicians make marvelous work in isolation from one another. Palestine Film Club believes there is a great need for active networking sessions amongst this demographic. We saw Haifa Film Festival in its 3rd edition as a great opportunity to host this initiative, for the second time. The first Film Industry Meetup successfully hosted 91 persons, among them were professional filmmakers, producers, talents and other film amateurs and lovers. The meetup lasted for 4 hours which mainly consisted mingling and exchange of ideas, business cards and life experiences. Following the mingle session, participants were requested to promote their projects in progress in an open mic session.
● To locate, connect and sustain a strong community of filmmakers amongst the Palestinian Film Industry people in historical Palestine.
● To allow exchange of ideas and potential collaboration between different Palestinian Film community layers. Notably between those living in 48 and other in Jerusalem \ West Bank, in addition to international collaborations with HIFF 2018 special guests.
● To create an effective support network between Palestinian Film Industry members.
