A five-day film festival called the “Red carpet” took place in Gaza amid the ruins of last year’s devastating war. Director of the festival, Khalil al-Mozayan, spoke to Sputnik in an interview about the importance of this festival for the Palestinians.

A resident of Gaza, Mohammed, came to the festival with his family to watch a movie called, “Ya Tayr El Tayer” (The Idol), biography about a young Gaza singer Mohammed Assaf, the winner of the TV show “Arab Idol” in 2013. It was the film’s premiere in the Gaza Strip.

This cinema is different from other cultural experiences of movie watching from around the world but even this is satisfactory for Mohammad who came to the premiere because under occupation there is no other option to watch the movies.


Red Carpet Human Rights Film Festival “Red carpet HRFF” is a festival for short and long narrative and documentary films will be held in Gaza Strip to highlights human rights issues, mainly in Palestine and generally all over the world.
