New Palestinian ‘Oscars’ aim to promote local cinema – Mohammed Daraghmeh – The Times of Israel 23.10.2016
Organisers of ‘Sunbird Prize’ say local industry is slowly moving beyond exhausted ‘hero-victim’ tropes to stories with more complex, controversial plots.

And see:

Two female Palestinian directors win big at Haifa Film Festival – Nirit Anderman – Haaretz 23.10.16
Maha Haj wins best feature for Personal Affairs. In Between - Bar Bahar by Maysaloun Hamoud wins best first feature.

A lucid Palestinian voice – Haaretz Editorial 27.10.16
It would be a good thing if instead of panicking and strangling any attempt to present the Palestinian narrative, the Jewish audience were to learn something about the world and the desires of the men and women who live alongside it.
