EU in Jordan supports Karama Human Rights Film Festival
December 3, 2019
This year again, the European Union in Jordan fully supports Karama Human Rights Film Festival (KHRFF), the reference event in the Human Rights calendar in Jordan, which is taking place on 5-12 December in Amman, Jordan.
KHRFF seeks to create a cross-cultural platform for artists, film-makers and the wider general public to engage in issues relating to human rights, in particular to the dignity of human beings, their sense of worth, belonging and spirit of common welfare among their communities and the wider national spectrum. The aim is to advocate for human rights, invite debate, encourage critical thinking and civic engagement, and open democratic dialogue about human rights issues among the various international, regional and local institutions and organizations, and the wider public.
the KHRFF event includes a number of interrelated activities: screening of films (feature, documentary and short) from different parts of the world; film discussions and debates with some of the films’ production teams; seminars and workshops; ‘MusiKarama’ which entails musical concerts and dance performances; the ‘Conscious of Art’ (Art and Photo Exhibition); Karama Atelier (an 8 week workshop that takes place before the Festival for the production of relevant films to be screened during the festival); and a series of mini conferences.
