I am sure that the Toronto film Fest has shown many films over the
years supporting Palestinians. As they have many other groups. Show
people who oppose any subject be able to silence the creativity of the
curators of the festival? Where does it stop?
Also if you have seen many Israeli films you will find many if not
most are against it's policy. and many if not most where supported by
the government.
So the without seeing what the films are, there may indeed be
representation, of your issues not by the makers, but by the
positions of the filmmakers.
I don't see how taking anyones voice/film out of the festival makes
the world better.
