Hoping at the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2011
World Refugee Day: Hoping

Bella Freud and filmmaker Gerry Fox presented an afternoon of film at this year's Edinburgh International Film Festival. On 20th June 2011, to mark World Refugee Day, we screened Gerry's film 'Hopes and Dreams: Portraits of Palestinian refugee children' followed by a collection of short films made by young Palestinian filmmakers from the Lajee Center in Aida Refugee Camp in the West Bank. The films were followed by a Q&A with both Bella and Gerry.
