The theme of the festival, which is chosen annually, is linked to its predecessor and paves the way for following year as one integrated fabric. Each year the festival devotes a new idea, through which it sheds light on a new aspect of those violated rights, through beautiful cinematic language and intricate imagery, to be the voice of those who they represent and stand up for.
Over the Years, KHRFF has become an incubator and network for various other Festivals Starting in Jordan and spreading to create as Karama Yemen, Karama Mauritania, Karama Beirut, Karama Tunis and Karama Palestine. In this year’s edition in Jordan, they hosted the event “Window on Karama Yemen”; screening films by Yemeni film directors and writers, representing the humanitarian situations and the daily circumstances of the Yemeni People.
This Festival is proof that art through its expressive imagery continues to play its social and cultural role of spreading awareness, lobbying for advocacy and conveying messages of solidarity and shared human values of all those who suffer in the world.
Given that cinema is the starting point; the screenings created a creative weave of majestic interaction between the physiological, contextual and legalities that combined to create an open horizon for mental liberation. The image remains strong and effective and has the ability to reach the depths of the soul, for more than a word or an idea. KHRFF turned Amman, the Jordanian capital, into a meeting point for human rights activists and professionals, alongside filmmakers, cinema lovers and artists- connected by the screen.
