#AlArdXIV ended last night at 10 after a super busy week: more than 25 hours among film screening and other various activities. Many thanks to the audience: this year we had an incredible participation and some of you have been with us since the very first minute of this festival. Thanks to those who came from "overseas" just to participate in this event: Invictapalestina Friends from Turin and Rome, the guys and girls of veronetta129 (Mediorizzonti) from Verona, our friends from Trieste and Milan.
We enjoyed the many compliments we got (really a lot) and we are happy having received critics as well, because, thanks to critics, every year, we are motivated to "raise the bar", in order to make each edition of our Festival better than the previous one.
Also a huge 'THANK YOU' goes to our guests in this fourteenth edition. It was really a pleasure for us to share many moments with artists and professionals, having lunch and dinner with them these last days and see with our very eyes that artists and professionals are really down to earth and easy to get along with: the film directors Maryse Gargour, Dima Abu Ghoush, Linda Paganelli, Hanaa Mahameed, Unai Aranzadi, Wafa' Espvall and those who also gave a contribution in workshops and filming, the Abu l-Khalil, Rula Shahwan and Nahed Habiballah; Fausto Gianelli and Enrico Bartolomei for offering us and our audience accurate information about Palestine from a juridical perspective and from an academic point of view; the staff of قناة الميادين Al Mayadeen TV: Kanj Rashid, Hassan Skayne and the aforementioned Hanaa, as they gave us a huge help in the promotion of the Festival. Best guests ever!
