Seeking film producers to portray the ‘Arab Spring’

Could the ‘Arab Spring’ be the creative driving force behind the Mediterranean cinematic landscape? At a time when entire film scripts are being written, the means to produce documentaries should also be secured. That’s exactly where the shoe pinches: in Beirut- just like in many other countries of the Mediterranean- there is a serious lack of local producers capable of expanding the native cinematic landscape. Against this backdrop, the European programme DOCmed aims to develop the capacity of local producers and help them find opportunities to promote their work abroad.
 
This is part of a series of features on projects funded by the EU’s Regional Programme, prepared by journalists and photographers on the ground or the ENPI Info Centre.
