Comra Films is a Yemen-based foundation for filmmaking.

In a place like Yemen where film studies is non-existent, foreign media access is blocked and political media outlets control the world’s view of Yemen and it’s people, we believe that now is the most pressing time for independent Yemeni filmmakers to reclaim their voice and change how the world sees them, their country and their struggles.

At Comra Films, we try to fulfil that mission through our training programs and film productions.

Film Training

We run filmmaking courses

such as creative documentary & fiction filmmaking workshops covering all filmmaking fundamentals from pre-production to post-production, both short & intensive. We also offer ongoing mentorship and guidance to our trainees to ensure they advance within the field. The majority of our trainees continue to work with us as interns, ad-hoc or full-time staff. Coming soon: Screenwriting training.

Film Production

We deliver a range of film production services

from online video campaigns, international TV footage, infographics and animation to producing long form creative documentary and fiction films.

Whatever filming access or skillset required across Yemen, we can most likely provide it, either in-house or by tapping into our network.
