Comra Doc Film Camp 2018

In war-torn Yemen where film studies is non-existent, we believe that 'now' is the most pressing time for independent Yemeni filmmakers to have a voice. Our training programs aim at providing these filmmakers with the tools and ongoing support necessary for them to tell their stories to the world.

The Comra Doc Film Camp 2018

The Comra Doc Film Camp 2018 was a 6-month documentary film training program run by Comra Films in Sana’a, Yemen, with the support of the Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (AFAC).

The program, led by Comra Films co-founder Sara Ishaq, was enriched by the participation of multiple filmmakers from across the Arab region via online masterclasses and post-screening Q&A sessions, and aimed at providing aspiring Yemeni filmmakers with the tools and support necessary to creatively tell their stories to the world through documentary film.

The Comra Doc Film Camp 2018 concluded with 12 short documentary films produced by 12 filmmakers from across Yemen, including Sana’a, Taiz, Aden, Ibb, Hadramout, Hajja and Albaydha.
