Karama Human Rights Film Festival


Years running: 15 (since 2010)

Karama Human Rights Film Festival

International Human Rights Film Festival.


The main theme for the KHRFF is human rights in general; children, women, refugees, political, economic, social and civic rights, and the role of films and culture in creating social and political change. Recent massive upheavals in the Arab region since the first edition (in 2010) have made it imperative to seek the exchange of expression, ideas, opinions and experiences on human rights issues across the region and the world. The festival’s core theme is human dignity

Along with the film festival Ma'mal 612 creates parallel human rights cultural events such as theatre, art exhibitions and music installations. Additionally, the organization has launched an outreach program in schools and universities and has created an Arab Youth Forum.

Theme: “The The Spirit of Humanity Vs. Extremism and Terrorism”.


Works finished after january 2019.
