Nehad Khader

DC Palestinian Film and Arts Festival
To capture the scope of her work, Nehad considers herself to be a cultural historian. She is a filmmaker, curator, editor, and writer whose work in film informs her work as a historian and vice versa. Trained in media and literature by Black and Palestinian creators, Nehad believes in art that carries aesthetic excellence as well as social and political significance. She is senior program manager at Philly’s BlackStar Film Festival and served as the curator of DC’s Palestinian Film & Arts Festival for six years until transitioning into an advisory role. She also serves as the managing editor of the Journal of Palestine Studies. At the moment, Nehad is directing one documentary film and producing two that aim to create new images and discourses about Muslims and Arabs, contributing to a long-existing canon of films by and about the communities they depict. Nehad is a 2017 Flaherty Film Seminar Fellow and a 2017 Leeway Transformation Award winner.
