WHAT
SCREEN INSTITUTE
BEIRUT DOES
SIB offers financial support for production of documentary films, access to production equipment and post-production facilities – and assists with professional expertise throughout the various stages of the production and distribution process.
DOCUMENTARY FILMS
IN THE ARAB WORLD
SIB has prioritized documentary film as the vehicle for its overall goals due to the effectiveness of documentaries to tell meaningful stories. Documentaries serve to tell the stories and reflections of personal lives and societal conditions that are rarely found in public and private mass media. Documentaries have the potential to communicate directly with people and communities who may not read or have ready access to independent political analyses and whose main source of information often comes from state-controlled news services.
