3000 Nights, a feature film by Palestinian director Mai Masri, will be featured at the closing ceremony of the 22nd European Film Festival, which runs between 25 January and 6 February in Beirut, Lebanon. 

Co-produced by Palestine, France, Jordan, UAE, Qatar and Lebanon, '3000 Nights' centres on a young newly-wed Palestinian school teacher who is jailed in a top-security Israeli prison where she eventually gives birth.

3000 Nights premiered in September 2015 at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). The film's US premiere tok place at Palm Springs International Film Festival in California this month. It also made its Arab world premiere in December 2015 as part of the Dubai International Film Festival’s 12th edition where it participated in the Muhr Arab Feature Films Competition.

Most recently, 3000 Nights opened the 4th edition of Luxor Arab and European Film Festival which runs from 30 January to 5 February.

The film was also released in its home country, in Nablus’ Cinema City on 15 January where it screened until 22 January.
