The Red Carpet Human Rights Film Festival in Gaza festival presents short and long feature films, documentaries and animation films, that shed the light on local and global humanitarian issues. The first edition took place in May 2015 when, amid the rubble of Gaza City’s Shijaiyah district, an area that was heavily bombarded during the 2014 summer’s war between Israeli forces and Hamas militants in the crammed enclave, the organisers rolled a 60 meters long red carpet.

It is the first festival in Gaza that focuses on human rights issues, with films and discussions on Palestine but also on other regions of the world. The festival was held in cooperation with Karama Film Festival in Jordan. “The people of Shijaiyah still don’t have homes until today, and this festival is a message to everyone to think of them as human beings,” said Khalil al-Mozayen, festival director. “I want the festival to send a message to the whole world that people of Gaza deserve life — that they love life and seek peace.”
