In harmony with its essential role in supporting documentary film production in the Arab World, and in an initiative that reflects both institutions’ common interest in documentary films and filmmakers and the forms of their support and promotion, Screen Institute Beirut (SIB) is offering its support for the 7th edition of Ayam Beirut Al Cinema’iya.
Screen Institute Beirut will offer a prize of $ 5000 to support the theatrical distribution of an Arab documentary from the festival’s official selection in its Arab Mother Country. The prize will be awarded either to the producer or distributor (If available), upon the presentation of a concrete and convincing distribution plan.
The jury members are:
– Irit Neidhardt – German Producer/ Distributor
– Nadine Labaki – Acclaimed Lebanese Director and Actress
– Paul Baboudjian – From Screen Institute Beirut
