Eye on Palestine 2014Teresa Palieri
KVS, Brussels, 24 March to 6 April 2014
Eye on Palestine is a festival that promotes quality and stimulating Palestine-related film and arts in Belgium. For their 2013 edition the main hall of the Flemish Royal Theater was turned into a temporary shop of Disarming Design from Palestine.
Born in 2010 the festival has grown from an exclusively film based program to one that also includes visual and live arts, theater and music performances along with lecture and debates. Eye on Palestine offers a platform for artist to express their views on the Palestinian reality. At the same time the festival wants to inject the belgian cultural world with critical and important work that is rarely seen in commercial circuits. The festival therefore takes Palestine to Belgium by bringing the audience together with young and established Palestinian and international directors, artist, writers, musicians, scholars and activists. Eye on Palestine is a non-profit social and cultural project realised by a wide range of Belgian organizations and institutions and many volunteers.
