Netflix Launches Training Program For Female Filmmakers In Middle East

Netflix has launched a training program for emerging female talent in Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the UAE. The streamer has tied with the Arab Fund for Arts and Culture on the program, which aims to introduce the creative filmmaking process and the different roles women can play behind the camera. Around 45 women who have recently graduated from film studies courses in the region are being targeted. Beginning in November with three days of workshops in Cairo, Dubai, and Jeddah, participants will be introduced to scriptwriting and the creative process of filmmaking by established female filmmakers from the Arab region. The participants will then visit Netflix’s Europe production hub early next year. “At Netflix, we are passionate about amplifying women’s voices behind the camera,” said Nuha el Tayeb, Director, Content Middle East, Africa and Turkey. “That includes a commitment to authentic storytelling which is intrinsically linked to developing the region’s talent pipeline.”
