In light of the continuing genocide in Gaza, we present a free programme of publicly available films and reportage videos in solidarity with Palestine and all Palestinians, in their continuing struggle for the fundamental rights to life, self-determination, liberty, equality, peace and justice for all.

Braziers Park School of Integrative Social Research was founded in the aftermath of the horrors of the second world war, with internationalist and intersectional values of peaceful co-existence, mutual aid and cooperation. As curators of Braziers International Film Festival, we condemn the ongoing illegal occupation, forced expulsion, ethnoreligious nationalism and supremacist genocide being inflicted on the Palestinian people by the apartheid state of Israel; a colonial-settler genocide being sanctioned, funded, and armed by our own elected governments, extractive corporations and university institutions.

We advocate and platform these films as an educational resource; to illuminate and amplify the voices, histories, lives, stories and struggles of the disenfranchised Palestinian people. As a cultural organisation, we support global collective action to achieve peace, equality and liberation for Palestine.

We stand with all signatories to the statement issued by Filmworkers for Palestine.
