We were disappointed, and we are very sorry that one of the cinema institutions in Abu Dhabi signed a cinematic agreement to work with the occupier and the Israeli colonizer, thus gaining immoral legitimacy for its colonization and occupation instead of strengthening Palestinian and Arab cinema and developing partnership with them. We invite our colleagues in the Arab Emirates, the Arab world and the cinema: to reject the partnership with the colonized cinema and to reject any work with any film institution in Abu Dhabi or the Arab world that concludes agreements with the Israeli occupier, and to work seriously to create Arab institutions and partnerships to support Palestinian and Arab cinema .
