The Karama Yemen: Human Rights Film Festival was launched in 2019 with the support of The Youth of the World Together Organization (YWT), a youth non-profit that provides platforms to empower the youth and create positive change in their communities, support peacebuilding, human rights and enrich global understanding using arts, cultural, and media.

Karama Yemen aims to advocate for human rights and social justice, encourage debate, and open a democratic dialogue on human rights issues by screening films from different parts of the world. The festival also serves as an important launchpad for Yemini talent and audiences to discover the diverse aspects of Yemeni life, the culture, and intimate portraits of life within the country.
