Continuing its significant success throughout the past two years in funding aspiring Arab filmmakers with projects, Zoomaal, in partnership with Hivos, launches its third challenge entitled the Must See Film Challenge.
MAD Solutions contributes to the initiative through promoting for the events and activities helmed by Zoomal platform to support striving Arab filmmakers who are collecting funds for their projects to turn their ideas into reality.
The Must See Film Challenge, running from August 20th till September 20th, 2014, aims at boosting vibrant filmmakers in the Arab region by giving them matched funding support of $20,000. For every $1 that a project receives, Zoomaal will put another $1 to double the impact.
