The Anhar Award

The Anhar award will be unveiled for the first time at Nuremberg IHRFF in Germany on October 4th, 2017 since it is one of the most renowned human rights film festivals in the world and is a strategic partner and affiliate of Anhar’s festivals.

The award aims to support, develop and promote the best film tackling key human rights issues in the Arab region by identifying and rewarding excellence in the creation of a film that is produced or directed by an Arab or international filmmaker.

Moreover, each member festival will nominate the best film from their editions in 2017 and the second Anhar award will be given at the concluding festival, Karama HRFF Jordan on December 10th, 2017.
