Our Festival

The Children's Rights Festival (CRF) opts to shed light on the necessity of a child's upbringing in a supportive environment, filled with love and understanding, in order to ensure the harmonious development of his or her personality. 


Inasmuch as we're concerned, a child should be fully prepared to live an individual life in society, and brought up in the spirit of the ideals proclaimed in the Charter of the United Nations, particularly in the spirit of peace, dignity, tolerance, freedom, equality and solidarity. The CRF aims to be the platform in Lebanon and the region, to emphasize the above values via visual media competitions, film screenings, panel discussions, lectures and workshops. 


1. promoting awareness of children’s rights to everyone; children and adults;

2. encouraging local artists to create socially relevant content within the context of children’s rights;

3. collaborating with NGOs, and international bodies when possible and join forces to reach larger audience.
