Open Bethlehem screened at Toronto Palestine Film Festival
Open Bethlehem received an amazing reception in Toronto with many new ambassadors for Bethlehem. Big Thank you to The Toronto Palestine Film Festival and everyone who made this happen - Dania Majid and all the very friendly festival staff. Thank you also for all your invitations for us to come back.
Dania Majid, founder and director of the Palestine film festival in Toronto said: The Toronto Palestine Film Festival was thrilled to host the sold-out Toronto premiere of Open Bethlehem. Director Leila Sansour was greeted by a standing ovation from our audience, who for the rest of the festival raved about the message of this film. It was an honour to be granted a Bethlehem passport alongside a resident of the city who was in our audience that night. The film and the campaign together allow people to experience the beauty of Bethlehem and the threats it faces. Thank you to all who are working on this important initiative to save a city we all love. "
