Ramallah Docs 2012
Category: Research, Training and Regional Events
The project consists of four sessions that will take place in Ramallah, Damascus, Cairo and Leipzig which will provide training and development workshops for Arab documentary filmmakers. The project sessions will assist participants to develop and produce new artistic works, including 12 short films inspired by the “Arab Spring” and by the role of social media in promoting, organizing and propagating revolutionary movements in the Arab world. The sessions will also assist participants in developing a complete production package with a professional trailer for their films, which can be presented to pitching forums, funders and producers for the purposes of the production and broadcast of 12 long-duration documentary films, based on their short films and pitches.
