Posted Tuesday 01 Nov 2011

Exciting news for Middle East women filmmakers; there's now a United Arab Emirates WIFT Chapter - the newest edition to our 10,000-member global organisation. The UAE chapter will mold its mission to pinpoint the areas of support while encouraging engagement with other women across the Middle East North African (MENA) region who have an interest in the film and television industry, but are currently limited by their access to resources.
