SIB Film Fund temporarily suspended


You are used to receive our newsletter celebrating our grantees' good news. For the first time we write to you with sad news.

As you all know, Screen Institute Beirut has been supporting documentary filmmakers in the MENA region since 2010, with more than 80 projects receiving grants so far.

Today we find ourselves constrained to stop our support due to lack of funding. We know that you will be saddened by this news as much as we are. We are disheartened to see this rupture in our ongoing relationship with the filmmakers with whom we have built close collaboration, and we hope that this will be a short-term crisis.

SIB has therefore initiated a major fundraising initiative tracking potential new donors and individual contributions from multiple sources that we hope will allow us to resume our production grant activity and educational offers.

With the hope of coming back soon to pursue our journey with you, we wish you all the best of luck.
