The eighth session of the International Human Rights Film Festival – Karama Tunisia

The 8th of the International Human Rights Film Festival – Karama Tunisia – was launched under the slogan “Women, Peace and Security” from 04 to 08 March 2023 in each of the governorates of Tunis, Tozeur, Gabes, Kasserine, and Mahdia.

The festival also organized a successful workshop in film criticism from March 4 to 8, 2023, aimed at students of media, cinema, audio-visual arts, and cultural journalists interested in analyzing and writing about films.

The slogan: “Women Peace and Security”:

During the seven previous editions, we have been able to forge our identity as well as the vision of our mission which happens to be more apparent and realistic: Promote the culture of Human Rights in Tunisia through local and international cinema, while ensuring openness to movements and changes taking place on a global scale.
Because of the events on the five continents, this edition was held as part of the celebration of International Women’s Day and the launch of National Plan 1325. As well as the celebration of the summit of La Francophonie and the celebration of the centenary of Tunisian cinema by this national choice, we decided during the eighth edition to raise the slogan:
“Women Peace and Security”

At the conclusion of its eighth session on March 8, 2023, coinciding with the celebration of International Women’s Day, the International Human Rights Film Festival chose to honor the writer and law professor Monia Ben Kul
