On Friday, 25 October, the General Delegation of Palestine, in partnership with Cultural Media Australia, organised an evening premiere of the Oscar-nominated, Palestinian film It Must Be Heaven at Capitol Cinemas Manuka, officially opening the Canberra leg of the Palestinian Film Festival.

The evening commenced with a cocktail reception followed by the screening of the critically acclaimed film, which deftly balances insights into the lives and ambitions of Palestinians with comic relief. In attendance were members and representatives of: the diplomatic corps, Canberra’s Palestinian community, advocacy and civil society groups, and government departments.
