The National Council for Human Rights Honors the Outstanding Human Rights TV Drama Tomorrow

Mr. Mohamed Fayek, President of the National Council for Human Rights, stressed that art is part of Egypt’s culture and the first line of defense for the Egyptian identity, believing that TV drama contributes to strengthening and raising the awareness of human rights culture among citizens, through tackling issues of interest to the audience. Furthermore, if it made good use of its ability, it lands a great impact on promoting human rights principles and spreading its culture.

This came on the occasion of the council’s annual celebration of the winning human rights projects of its awards in 2020.

Gamal Fahmy, Secretary of the Committee on Cultural Rights said that a jury panel has been formed with the following members; director Inaam Mohmed Ali, film critic Tarek El Shenawy, director Karam El Nggar, film critic Khairia Al-Beshlawi, writer Maher Zohdy, and film critic Ramy Abdelrazek, to select the best among the 2020 TV drama, in regard to respecting human rights principles and values.

Gamal Fahmy also added that the panel has watched the series that was screened during Ramadan and selected 3 works, in addition to an animated series to honor their filmmakers, within the celebration.

The celebration is attended by the winning projects’ directors, cast, writers and filmmakers. In addition to the public figures interested in the industry, heads of National Information Councils and related trade unions, TV channels, and representatives of the ministries and human rights relevant and supportive bodies.

It’s worth mentioning that the Council holds this celebration annually since 2011.
