[Nettime-bold] [] 2002 Palestine International Video Festival


The "2002 Palestine International Video Festival" is a new video festival to
take place in the West Bank during the winter of 2002. The festival will
showcase an international collection of contemporary video art,
installations, and documentaries. During the festival, the works will be
installed in various independent galleries, screened on local television
stations, and made permanently available in a public archive at Birzeit

The festival is an attempt to breach the cultural and intellectual isolation
of the Palestinian people brought about by the ongoing Israeli occupation of
the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Issues ranging from immigration and exile,
the practice of everyday life, and the aftermath of September 11th will be
explored by the festival's diverse participants. The festival was conceived
by Emily Jacir (UNDP/TOKTEN), and is co-organized by John Menick. It will
hopefully mark the beginning of an ongoing dialog between the international
cultural community and the residents of Palestine.

All our best,
Emily Jacir and John Menick
