We established significant collaborations with the most prestigious film institutions in the international documentary arena in order to create substantial opportunities for the Greenhouse filmmakers from the Middle East and North Africa to further receive support for their projects. These collaborations assist our filmmakers to push their projects further towards completing high standards documentaries and network with highly acclaimed professionals.
In the past few years we continued nurturing these important professional ties forged with prestigious documentary film funds and cinema institutions such as The Jacob Burns Film Center in NY, Sundance Institute's' Documentary Program, Middle East Now Film Festival, Florence, Italy, MEDIMED - The Mediterranean Documentary Market in Spain, and Tribeca Film Institute in NY. These collaborations were formed to offer Greenhouse filmmakers important professional support, after the completion of the program, both on content and with connections to the international documentary industry, enabling our young filmmakers to complete their films.
