Public Statement in Solidarity with Palestine

May 18, 2021

May 19, 2021

Images Festival expresses its solidarity with Palestinian people and joins the global call to end Israeli colonial violence in the occupied territories of East Jerusalem and Gaza. We condemn the forced dispossession and displacement of Palestinian residents of Sheikh Jarrah by Israeli authorities, and the deadly airstrikes that continue to kill civilians, including children, in Gaza.


We are grateful to our friends and colleagues at the Toronto Palestine Film Festival, who have assembled the following list of resources to help guide us as we learn, reflect, and take action, individually and collectively. We strongly encourage you to consult these resources, and to follow the ongoing work of organizations such as TPFF and the Palestinian Youth Movement to remain up to date on how to get involved.


In solidarity,
