About us
 
     The religious rituals surrounding the martyrdom of the third Shi’ite Imam Husayn ibn Ali (pbuh) are glorious practices by the Islamic world which not only carry a strong emotional sensation due to the historical oppression visited upon the Ahlebait, but also have deep rational roots observed by millions around the world. 
     Every year the cities of Najaf and Karbala witness the gathering of religious observers and seekers of justice and righteousness to pledge their allegiance to the Ahlebait and show humility in light of their virtues and teachings. 
    The international film and photo festival of “the journey of love” pays tribute to all those who attempt to exhibit and display a part of this annual event. Indeed this is an attempt to encourage filmmakers, photographers and artists from around the world to exercise their capabilities and fulfill their potential in service to such higher cause.
