Associazione Amicizia Sardegna Palestina is pleased to present the seventeenth edition of Al Ard [doc] Film Festival —a competition that supports filmmakers who shine a light on the Palestinian issue and the Arab World through their documentary work.
This seventeenth edition, a new section dedicated to experimental and animation films has been added: the Handala section! A new section means also a new award (making them 7 in just one edition)!
Check out the 3 different sections:
- Al Ard Classic: Section dedicated to all the documentaries, of any duration, from anywhere in the world.
- Echo of the Camp: Section dedicated to short films (20 min MAX) both fiction and documentaries produced by young filmmakers (up to 30 years old) from Palestinian refugee camps, whose films tell creatively the life in the camps in Palestine but also in Jordan, Syria or Lebanon.
- [NEW!] Handala: Section dedicated to experimental and/or animated films of any duration. This section is named after the most famous character of the Palestinian artist Naji al-Ali, Handala. We decided to add this section since the production of such genres is growing more and more lately among the directors who deal with Palestine and the Arab world.
Here are all the XVII edition Awards:
- Al Ard Award (best documentary of the Festival, assigned by the Jury), euro 1000;
- Palestine Award (best documentary about Palestine, assigned by the Jury), euro 1000;
- Emerging Director Award (assigned by the Jury), euro 1000;
- Audience Award (assigned by the audience), euro 500;
- Sardegna Palestina Award (assigned by the Selection Board), euro 500;
- Echo of the Camp Award (assigned by the Selection Board), euro 500;
- Handala Award (assigned by the Selection Board), euro 500.
