This year's festival 2017

Call for Film Entries

Karama Human Rights Film Festival presents its 8th edition which is set to take place from December 5th to the 10th, 2017 in Amman, Jordan. The festival will focus on films that are at the heart of this year’s theme ‘Give Life a Chance’.  

In our 8th edition, we shall give life a chance through cinema to plant the seeds of hope in our youth in times of despair and constant social and political conflict. Through our festival, we opt to offer hope that affirms our dream of a better life.

We are currently receiving submissions for the inclusion of feature films (fiction & nonfiction), documentaries (long & short), short films & animation. 

All films should be produced between 2014 & 2017. The deadline for receiving applications is September 20th, 2017.
