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 meetup will last for about 4 hours which mainly consist of mingling and exchange of ideas, business cards and life experiences.

Following the mingle session, participants are requested to participate in an open mic session in which they promote their projects in progress, or sign up during the meetup for a pitching session that takes place simultaneously to the networking event.
