PFM was established in 2017 as the cutting-edge industry platform of Palestine Cinema Days. PFM brings together key industry professionals from Palestine and abroad, creating a creative open space to network, think and discuss films, and pitch and develop projects. By empowering Palestinian filmmakers, producers and professionals, we seek to create change that fosters the cultural landscape of Palestine.
Since its launch, PFM has successfully become a focal point for local film production, where market-relevant topics are discussed in relation to the shifting regional and global conditions and the specific industry challenges of the Palestinian context. In 2019, sixty-nine international guests, including filmmakers, producers, journalists and industry professionals, attended the festival’s screenings, meetings and debates, solidifying PFM’s status as an annual event not to be missed.
