A web-series published on YouTube features esteemed filmmakers from the Arab world sharing their experience in the field, in a new unique project.
Film Arabi is a project made by Film Independent in cooperation with Film Clinic and a group of diverse Arab filmmakers.
In the short simple but fun episodes, two students work in a cafeteria called “Studio Egypt”, where filmmakers often visit. When they come across the stars of filmmaking in the Arab World, their conversations lead them to a certain aspect of cinema— which the star gives a mini-lecture on.
The web-series aims to provide Arab youth with the knowledge and tools need to tell their own stories and address critical issues in their own communities.
The series covers the filmmaking process from script to screen and explores strategies to engage the audience while highlighting the impact storytelling can make in society.
Filmed in Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and the UAE, the series features a diverse group of working filmmakers from across the Arab world, who provide their insight on specific elements of filmmaking and show examples from their own work and from Arab cinema.
