About Beirut DC
DC was founded in Beirut, Lebanon in 1999 by a group of cinema professionals
and art advocates. The organization began its projects towards the end of 1999.
The aim of Beirut DC was to provide help and support to Arab independent
filmmakers, in facing up and overcoming the constraints facing
independently-minded Arab cinema.
In due time, Beirut DC became more capable and efficient in its efforts to
adjust to the difficulties and challenges facing Arab independent movie-makers.
The organization was able to learn and profit from its prolonged experience,
and to gain the knowledge necessary to define and pursue its ongoing projects.
In a region where individuality is generally restricted, Beirut DC encourages
its partners and collaborators to produce films that are relevant to their
society, that seek to question pre-established forms and beliefs, and aim to
induce change and new, personal approaches.
