The Saudi Film Commission started receiving applications for the Digital Filmmaker Program via the British Film Industry (BFI), at the link: https://engage.moc.gov.sa./film_talents.
The program, which will be conducted virtually by the BFI, will provide production training to professionals and amateurs.
The program offers the “professional and amateur” tracks focusing on specialization in filmmaking and will be launched online this year.
Through the program, which is supported by the Ministry of Culture under the Quality of Life Program, the commission aims to give local film talent new knowledge in all areas of film production — from marketing down to the concept stage — to contribute to the Saudi film industry and upgrade it to higher professional levels.
Along with the BFI, the commission is also working with the School of Cinema-Television at the University of Southern California and the Creative Media Skills Institute at Pinewood in the UK to deliver the program.
