Bidayyat for Audiovisual Arts proudly announces its first intensive training program “Introduction into Documentary Film Directing”.
It will offer 8 to 10 participants the opportunity to follow a practical, hands-on intensive training as an introduction into directing documentary films. It targets emerging talents from Syria and Lebanon as well as Palestinians residing in both countries with a demonstrated interest in arts and film and the desire to specialize in directing documentary films that engage and question society.
There are two components—practice and theory—and over the course of the program, participants will make a short film with the assistance of their instructors, which will be produced by Bidayyat.
The program will consist of 4 intensive modules of around ten days each in alternation with individual mentoring phases and will be held over the course of approximately six months. Throughout this period, the participants will not only be introduced to basic theoretical knowledge about documentary cinema, but also acquire specific skills that each participant will apply to direct one short documentary film as a result of this training.
The training curriculum has been developed with the help of specialists and educators in the field of filmmaking, and will be implemented by a group of the most prominent Arab and International instructors and filmmakers. Specialist trainers will instruct and supervise the participants in groups and in one-on-one sessions in addition to mentoring between each training module.
