Karama Beirut Human Rights Film Festival (KBHRFF) – Third Edition
The Lebanese NGO “Art Factory 961”, founding member of ANHAR, launched on the 17th of July the third edition of “Karama Beirut Human Rights Film Festival” under the theme “Free the Word,” at a press conference held at Metropolis, Empire Sofil. The festival, held in cooperation with the United Nations Information Centre in Beirut (UNIC Beirut) and the embassies of Switzerland, the Czech Republic and the Netherlands in Lebanon, runs from 17 to 20 July 2018 at Metropolis Empire Sofil.
Karama Beirut Human Rights Film Festival (KBHRFF) is a film event that contributes, among other well-established and renowned human rights film festivals in the world, to spreading a cinema that denounces racism, hate discourse, discrimination and injustice. The 3rd edition aims to support free expression that is liberated from traditional official models, as well as remind the public that censorship and exploitation of artistic work stand in the way of practising our human rights, the same rights that our countries have agreed to protect. It is our duty to preserve the positive spirit of creativity and to avoid the spectre of repression.
