This section is dedicated to Rawi Alumni whose films have made it to the big screen.
The Lab has supported over 100 Arab screenwriters over the years, and the Rawi team is always proud to see those emerging filmmakers realize their film projects. Many of these films have toured regional and international film festivals earning prestigious awards, with some making it all the way to the Oscars, Venice and Toronto film festivals.
Completed projects by Rawi Alumni that were developed with the assistance of the Lab include:
4. 40 Years and One Night (Trailer
) – Jordan/Palestine
6. Amreeka (IMDb
7. Daughters of Abdul-Rahman
10. I Am Nojoom, Age 10 and Divorced
) – Yemen
12. Pomegranates and Myrrh
A number of Rawi Alumni have also gone on to complete film projects after their participation in the Lab, different than the projects they worked on during Rawi.
We are also proud to highlight their successes as Rawi aims at equipping its fellows with the creative tools and skills they can benefit from whoever they are working on a screenplay. Such skills are never limited to one project as they stay with a screenwriter for a lifetime.
Below is a list of projects completed by Rawi Alumni after their participation at the Lab:
