Red Carpet Human Rights Festival in Palestine

Red Carpet Human Rights Festival in Palestine

May 12, 2018

The Red Carpet Human Rights Film Festival in Gaza presents short and feature-lengthfiction films and documentaries shedding light on human rights issues in and around the Gaza strip. At the first three editions (2015-2017) the organizers rolled their 60 meters long red carpet at different venues in Gaza City including the city’s Shijaiyah district,an area that was heavily bombarded in 2014 . To support this year’s theme ‘flying away from Gaza’, screenings will be held in various locations such as in the airport. During its 4th edition, from 12-19th May 2018, the festival will draw in at least 2500 visitors per day.

The Red Carpet Human Rights Festival is one of the 21 projects that were sponsored by Movies that Matter in 2017. Click here to read more about our other supported projects of this year.
