SOLIDARITY TEL AVIV HUMAN RIGHTS FILM FESTIVAL
مِهرجان تل أبيب للسينما وحقوق الإنسان
The Israeli Program
Solidarity –Tel Aviv Human Rights Film Festival is a unique event that raises awareness on significant socio-political issues through screenings of groundbreaking films on human rights in Israel and around the world, films that promote peace, democracy and human rights alongside equality and social justice.
Solidarity, the only Israeli film festival dedicated to human rights, takes place at the Tel Aviv Cinematheque since 2010. The Festival program combines award-winning narrative and documentary films, providing contexts for issues related to social and political struggles, among them: globalization, refugees, the occupation, hunger and poverty, women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, freedom of speech, and the climate crisis.
The Israeli program includes premieres and a selection of some of the best Israeli films in the field of human rights in 2019 as well as works by Palestinian filmmakers. This year the Israeli program offers special events dedicated to local authors and filmmakers, a competition for short films, a competition for student films and, for the first time, a competition for films by high school students. All competitions aim to encourage local filmmakers to engage with human rights issues.
The Solidarity Festival is produced by the Solidarity for the Arts, Activism and Human Rights Association. We believe in the power of cinema to be thought provoking and spark activism towards a just reality and better future for all of us in Israel, in the region and worldwide. In the current climate, when the very notion of democracy is under threat, it is important for us to stand up and make our voices heard clearly, bravely and freely.
