As it enters its second edition, HIFF aspires to create a cultural crossing between Haifa and unreacheable, prohibited parts of the Arab world – allowing a leap out of our inner and inter-cultural voids that have been prevalent for too long.
Within Haifa, there are multiple productions of pictures that screen annually in front of international audiences. The Haifa Independent Film Festival is the first to host these local talents: the prominent, the emerging, and the unacknowledged.
Stretching over several Palestinian venues in Haifa – Al Midan Theater, Khashabi Theater, Kabareet and Al Yakhour, HIFF brings forth an exposé of works ranging from newly released films from Palestine and the Arab world, to pictures from past decades.
Stay tuned for the full upcoming program.
