GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — For the second year in a row, the Women's Affairs Center in the Gaza Strip organized on Nov. 3 a women’s film festival headlined "Women for Change" in which several drama films produced by the center and tackling bold topics were shown.

Hanin Kullab, 32, produced a short film called "Lailat Farah" ("A Joyful Night"), which was shown at the festival held inside Rashad al-Shawwa hall in Gaza City. The film talks about early marriage for men and women, which is a rampant phenomenon in the Gaza Strip.
