To capture the scope of her work, Nehad Khader considers herself to be a cultural historian. She is a filmmaker, film curator, literary 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, Khader believes in art that carries aesthetic excellence as well as social and political significance. She is the senior program manager of Philadelphia’s BlackStar Film Festival, and served as the curator of the DC Palestinian Film & Arts Festival for six years. Khader is also the managing editor of the Journal of Palestine Studies, a 2017 Flaherty Film Seminar Fellow, and a 2017 Leeway Transformation Award winner. Her debut feature-length documentary, Unbowed received support from the Tribeca Film Institute in 2018.
