The Film Clubs aim to provide an open space for the young talented Jordanian artists to express themselves creatively, through audio-visual media, with a focus on the art and craft of filmmaking.
Film clubs are an accessible outlet available for the local community to create by providing space, equipment and learning opportunities.
The Film Clubs serve several objectives:
The Royal Film Commission - Jordan and Princess Basma Youth Resource Center (JOHUD), signed a Memorandum of Understanding, on 17 December 2007, to establish three well-equipped film clubs in Sahab, Irbid, and Aqaba.
These clubs are hosted in the JOHUD’s centers and are run by local organizations trained by the RFC.
As a result of the fruitful collaboration between RFC and the NGO “Al Ruwad - Jabal Al Natheef for Youth”, a fourth film club at Jabel Al Natheef, East of Amman, will be soon established.
A monthly five-day filmmaking workshop is conducted in each film club, targeting at least 10 young people and providing filmmaking knowledge and skills. Film clubs’ members are enabled to create their own stories based on storytelling skills, acquire multimedia literacy, participate in community activities and eventually receive recognition by showcasing their work. In addition, film clubs host a library corner with films and film-related books.
