Beirut DC


Beirut DC is a cultural association for the development of independent Arab cinema.
Founded in 1999. Beirut DC aims at:
- Encouraging and enhancing a creative cinematic movement in the Arab World through varying modes of promotion, production, training and coproduction meetings
- Supporting Arab independent filmmakers and producers by encouraging them to create films that question socially established norms and beliefs
- Urging change and the development of new personalized cinematic approaches
- Using art and cinema to communicate across the largest audience possible, ultimately, transforming the art of film into a tool that reaches all communities and societies
- Normalizing cinema by making it readily available for everyone to enjoy as opposed to its current status as a luxury good

Involvement in film

Beirut DC produced and coproduced few feature length documentaries trying to discover a new way of production or cinema langage.


We can only do what we do because of organisations and individuals who support our work.
