In addition to checking out the Mizna Arab Festival that’s already underway—get up to speed on the films with our Quick Q+A with Lana Barkawi, who also offers some film and panel recommendations—stop into the DEAR GAZA block party on Sunday. The party is both a benefit and show of solidarity for the people in Gaza, as well as a party with poetry, art, and live music. Last year’s even was able to raise $20,000 for Gaza, and America Near East Refugee Aid was able to turn that money into $1.3 million dollars worth of medical supplies. Sunday, 3-10 PM. Free, donations suggested.Taylor Carik
