The project is using cinema as a tool for raising the culture of human rights among young people, children and families. It will take place in marginalized districts of Casablanca, Salé and Rabat. It includes several recurring events and activities, namely the Thursdays of Cinema and Human Rights, children’s morning sessions and the master class on cinema and human rights. The aim is to involve local young people, providing a new tool for dialogue, social integration, cultural change and advocacy for a stronger commitment to human rights.
The project is led by the Association of Mediterranean Meetings of Cinema and Human Rights (ARMCDH), based in Rabat, which is dedicated to promoting the culture of human rights through cinema; in partnership with Centre culturel les étoiles de Sidi Moumen- Fondation Ali Zaoua, based in Casablanca working for social development and psycho-social rehabilitation of young underprivileged Moroccans by facilitating their access to all forms of artistic expression, National Human Rights Council, national institution for the protection and defence of human rights and freedoms in Morocco; Association Al Kachf Al Mounir, contribute to educating of children and youth as responsible citizens; and Moroccan Centre for Cinematography, one of the world’s oldest public establishments tasked with regulating and promoting film.
