As an aspiring independent filmmaker from Lebanon, I need to branch out of the local industry both to find funding for my project and to get new insights and perspectives into it. The Adam Basma project holds a personal story that hopefully, will be able to speak to people from different cultures.

I heard a lot about this wonderful program from some friends and it saddened me to find out that this would be the last edition of the Project Market. Therefore I find it a privilege for me to be able to live this experience before that it’s gone. Workshare, feedback, and teamwork are essential in one’s artistic career, and I am grateful for every workshop and experience that taught me that and made me grow as a person and as an artist. I am trying all my best to find funding for a script that I truly believe in, programs to develop it furthermore, local and international artists to share it with, and who knows we may be working together in the future! The project market is the perfect place for me to have a cultural and artistic exchange with international peers and instructors so as an opportunity for me to be part of an International coproduction team. I truly believe and hope that the Project Market would be a key ingredient in making “Disco Beirut” see the light of day.

Robert Bosch is one of the best foundations that helps emerging filmmakers to tell their stories and give them the opportunity to collaborate with other filmmakers in different countries. For me Robert Bosch will help my project have a broader perspective and get more experience from other fellow filmmakers.

Since we're currently working on finalizing the script and seeking the proper funding in order to start filming by the end of summer - beginning of autumn, the Project Market will be a step which will boost our work and make the connections and potential funding more accessible and tangible since the conversations will be in person, not only over the internet. Those one-on-one conversations will allow me and the participating producers to debate and talk in details about the project itself and its execution. It's also very interesting to be able to work with people coming from different cultures, as their various perspectives are an added value. In addition, this film will be my very first independent film, since my two previous ones were short films I executed as a film student. It will also give me and my team more time to work meticulously before, during and after the shooting on all the aspects of the film. Moreover, this is one of the very rare opportunities in which I will possibly be able find a collaborator from Germany, willing to work on short film projects, not only features.

For this reason, I’m submitting my project. But Also, I’m here to exchange with professionals, get new opinions about my work and have helpful advices.

For a while now I have been making films with ZERO budget and support, and with all these limitations I've done very well considering. Now I feel is the time for me to find some production support so I can really show what I can do and start living up to my potential. I want to express myself creatively on a higher more professional level. I'm very accustomed to working with people from all over the world as all my shorts have involved team members from a variety of nationalities so I feel I'm very equipped to function with a co-production environment.

I wish to participate in the project market because I believe in co-production as it gives the film more International visibility, Distribution and better artistic quality. I feel i need a support from a European producer to lead me through this path , as i wish to make this film because i wish to denounce the cult of virginity in the MEA but i need to make it in the best conditions as it's a Doc-fiction genre due to the reconstruction scenes.

Lately I’ve been working on a new short film and the time has come to move forward and seek financing ,and I thought the Project Market in Amman is a very suitable opportunity for such a film to find a German co producer who is already interested in a short film from the Middle East and apply for the Robert Bosch. And I am looking forward to be part of this project because it will open up a wide field for co-production.

I believe that the most valuable help I can give to a a fellow artist or receive as well is a good discussion. That's why I want to participate in the project market. To expose myself and my project to a different and wide range of fellow filmmakers and producers from different backgrounds and with different points of view. Through this exposure, and through proper and creative communication with each other I hope the project, and me as well, will be able to grow, evolve, and benefit from the open environment provided to us by the film market.

I believe that collaborating with other people coming from a different culture and background could develop any movie and that's what the Project Market offers. Exchange knowledge and experiences, Share ideas with people having the same passion as me, Get to know there stories and present my movie among them and of course find the right team partner for my movie.

I'm currently working on my second feature documentary project, and it is at the development stage. I believe in the power of international co-production in making unique films. Therefore, I'd like to participate at the Project Market in order to expand my network and meet German producers, and hopefully to form a team and collaborate on the project and apply for the 2021 edition of Robert Bosch Stiftung prize. Also,I am sure that the project market is offering an open and safe environment for filmmakers and film professionals to discuss their projects, and to learn from each other. I believe that this encouraging atmosphere would help me develop my upcoming feature documentary project further.

Since 2018, I have been filming with 3 ladies: Salma, Esraa, and Amina from Egypt. Driven by the fact that being a woman in an Arab country is a challenging task. Every time I walk with Salma and Esraa in the street, I witness their exposure to many comments. Most of them are about their bodies, some are positive and some are just harassment. When they stopped wearing Hijab, even their closer circles built false impressions about them. So, I started documenting both sides of the coin. The life from Salma and Esraa perspectives on one hand, and the social perspective on the other. Surprisingly, the gap between them is really scary. I can call this film a social experiment, as in public places I tend to collect first impressions about Salma from total strangers and their impressions showed how vulnerable our society is. This film draws the double face of our society honestly. Yet, like any other beginner director, I face many obstacles. Financially, I have no production support. Conceptually, I have a lot of questions about the film structure and style which I hope your workshop will support me through this journey.
