Event: Tripoli Human Rights Film Festival

An exceptional event of note, for those in Tripoli, Libya, as well as anyone interested in showing such films elsewhere to raise awareness:

The National Awareness Movement (NAM) has organised a four-day film festival at Tripoli’s Radisson Blu hotel, starting on 1 November.

The festival is centred on the concept of human rights and the films to be displayed illustrate the hardships endured when human rights violations occur.

Debates and panel discussions will be held between film viewings and have been themed to reflect Libya’s current experience.

Among the films to be shown are Pray the Devil Back to Hell, Back to the Square and The Light in Her Eyes.

The festival is sponsored by Amnesty International’s Movies that Matter Foundation, and further details can be found here.

    I attended the festival on the first two days, it was quite full of people and the movies where fine. I understand, after the first two days the attendance has been narrower, nevertheless it has been a good initiative.

    I have just discovered your blog, my first impression is great, I am amazed!

      Thank you, Lorenzo! And I am terribly envious of your attendance – I was in Libya in March and I have yearned to return ever since. An amazing country!
