A Norwegian film festival refused to screen an Israeli film because of its adherence to a cultural boycott. Now, a pro-Israel organization is arranging for the film to be showed through its own initiative.

The Other Dreamers, a documentary about Israeli children with special needs, was rejected by organizers of the Human Rights Human Wrongs film festival last August due to their requirement that only Israeli films that deal with the “occupation” will be considered for screening.

This prompted MIFF, a group whose name is a Norwegian acronym which means “for Israel with peace,” to arrange its own public screening of the film.

“By appearing at the screening you are helping to provide a powerful demonstration that we cannot tolerate this discrimination,” MIFF said.
