The preparatory committee for the “Red Carpet Film Festival for Human Rights – Karama Palestine” in Gaza has announced the launch of the festival in its sixth edition, which will be held by the end of September, 2022 under the slogan “Together”.
The director of the festival Khalil Al-Muzain confirmed that the festival will focus through its films and activities on the challenges facing human rights issues at the local and international levels, and call for mobilizing efforts and talents to defend the rights of the Palestinian people, and highlight the Israeli violations of the civil and political rights.
The festival’s deputy director, Abdul Rahman Hussein, said that the festival sheds light through films on human rights issues in general and on the conditions of these rights during the emergency period, in the Palestinian territories in particular. He noted that the registration time for films is still open to participate in the sixth edition of the festival through the festival’s official website and platform Film Freeway.
It is noted that the festival was held in its first edition in 2015 in the Shejaiya neighborhood, east of Gaza City, where a red carpet was spread among the ruins of houses destroyed by the Israeli aggression in 2014. In 2017, the festival became a founding member of the Arab Network for Human Rights Film Festivals – ANHAR.
