To Whom It May Concern, Hello there! I am a young filmmaker from China and is madly in love with getting in touch with as many cultures as possible. It is my hope of presenting, to the world, a fragment of the reality of China on a very personal angle with the spread of my body of work. This, indeed, is why I intend to sell the short films I made in the past. It is not only a chance for me to meet the world, but also a chance for the world to meet me. Best Regards, Ben C.C. Cheung

I heard a lot about this wonderful program from some friends and it saddened me to find out that this would be the last edition of the Project Market. Therefore I find it a privilege for me to be able to live this experience before that it’s gone. Workshare, feedback, and teamwork are essential in one’s artistic career, and I am grateful for every workshop and experience that taught me that and made me grow as a person and as an artist. I am trying all my best to find funding for a script that I truly believe in, programs to develop it furthermore, local and international artists to share it with, and who knows we may be working together in the future! The project market is the perfect place for me to have a cultural and artistic exchange with international peers and instructors so as an opportunity for me to be part of an International coproduction team. I truly believe and hope that the Project Market would be a key ingredient in making “Disco Beirut” see the light of day.

Currently, I'm working on two short fiction films (“Shawky” and “Sometimes Mickey”) as a director in different production phases and as a producer in a third short fiction film: “Ibn El-Leil (Tomorrow, I rise with the night..) ”. "Shawky", and "Sometimes Mickey" are about the post-revolution changes in Egyptian society from the eyes of people living on the margin; "Ibn El-Leil (Tomorrow, I rise with the night..)” is about a sympathetic young man, who is troubled by his past memories of his ruthless murky hometown. My focus is now on "Shawky" to participate in several production funds such as Robert Bosch prize, and to find a supportive co-production, which can support the film vision till the distribution phase. I believe that working with an international crew would be very useful to sharpen the project, that is coming from my experience since I moved abroad. Therefore, I am looking for a German producer. Since I moved to Germany more than 4 years ago, I am working on expanding my network in the film community in Germany, as I see a lot of strength in co-production. My aim is not limited to "Shawky" but far beyond future projects too.

Lately I’ve been working on a new short film and the time has come to move forward and seek financing ,and I thought the Project Market in Amman is a very suitable opportunity for such a film to find a German co producer who is already interested in a short film from the Middle East and apply for the Robert Bosch. And I am looking forward to be part of this project because it will open up a wide field for co-production.

For a while now I have been making films with ZERO budget and support, and with all these limitations I've done very well considering. Now I feel is the time for me to find some production support so I can really show what I can do and start living up to my potential. I want to express myself creatively on a higher more professional level. I'm very accustomed to working with people from all over the world as all my shorts have involved team members from a variety of nationalities so I feel I'm very equipped to function with a co-production environment.

I was brought up in a small marginalized Egyptian village, not unlike any village in the very-distant-from-the-capital countryside. All the time, I used to think that we, the villagers, have no voice; for we possess no space to express our lives, problems, sorrows, and joys. The Egyptian media, in all its forms, represents Cairo and its people and of course, Egyptian Cinema tells mostly stories about and for them. That is why I had the ambition to become a filmmaker so that I can lend a voice to the villages, their dwellers, and their stories. I left my village several years ago, like most village men who either travel to Cairo or the Gulf region, seeking a job or studying opportunities. In Cairo, I had a chance to learn filmmaking at the Jesuit Film School, after which I started my career as a filmmaker and worked on different projects. The quick pacing of life in Cairo leaves you little room to breathe or think. Days pass by and I juggle working from one project to the other. But when I stopped trying to catch up to the pace of Cairo for a moment, I felt that something went wrong during these years; for the projects, I worked on were not why I came here in the first place. I want to participate in this event to refresh my mind, soul and push myself back into the right track

Since my youth age, i was always driving by the emotional power of cinema and moving images. I started making videos, catch life where it is and carry on images inside of me. My heart beats for all genres, from video art to narrative films and documentaries, and I am looking forward to meet new collaborators to share experience and help me direct my new projects.

I want to be part of the community of creatives at Project Market because I want to tell a story of a German correspondent to Egypt and his upper Egyptian fixer. The German is obsessed with order in a disordered world and the Egyptian is lost in translation. Both are searching for the new normal in an overly paranormal culture at an overly paranormal time. Such a story will come to the screen only through a collab between Germans and Egyptians, at least.

I believe that collaborating with other people coming from a different culture and background could develop any movie and that's what the Project Market offers. Exchange knowledge and experiences, Share ideas with people having the same passion as me, Get to know there stories and present my movie among them and of course find the right team partner for my movie.

This film will highlight the true struggles and pain of gay and LGBT people in this region, and specifically, Jordan. Homosexuality here, although not penalized, is extremely stigamtized and not socially tolerated. And because of this, having this project funded and produced is very important. Having no kind of representation in media and on screen, shedding light on the subject is a modern-day necessity. Raising a controversy is a given when you try to influence minds and oppose outdated beliefs, but believing in an important cause and raising awareness about it transcends all troubles and inconveniences. Participating in the Project market will give us the chance to bring this story to life.

As a young queer filmmaker from Lebanon, I’ve always believed in the power of inclusivity and diversity. I believe it’s time for the young arab generation’s stories to be heard. This program seems evident for This is my Blood, a personal short film that evokes both homosexuality and religion. The Film Market is the perfect platform for development, growth, and visibility. I look forward to hearing others’ insights, exchanging knowledge, and to achieving my story’s full potential.

I believe that the most valuable help I can give to a a fellow artist or receive as well is a good discussion. That's why I want to participate in the project market. To expose myself and my project to a different and wide range of fellow filmmakers and producers from different backgrounds and with different points of view. Through this exposure, and through proper and creative communication with each other I hope the project, and me as well, will be able to grow, evolve, and benefit from the open environment provided to us by the film market.

TAVMA is a platform that builds a bridge between international emerging artists and the film industry. We develop production packaging for authors and directors who are not yet on the map. We put newcomers on the radar of the film industry, connect creatives with decision-makers as well as influencers, and provide opportunities beyond their own borders. We are the fairy godmother. TAVMA looks for unique and untold stories by upcoming filmmakers from regions still untapped by the international film industry. In a second step, we match these high potentials with the right partners. Finally, TAVMA brings the artists onto the international stage to the right audience.

The Project Market is a great opportunity and platform for me to expand my professional network and exchange with other filmmakers and producers. Finding a German Partner who would believe in my project would be a huge step forward and would give the whole film an international power. As a young director, I am enthusiastic to know other emergent artists, learn from and with them. Overall, I see The Project Market as an international field where the film seed could find its way to grow.

I am fascinated by many aspects of the Arab culture. There is a lot to learn from each other, and especially in days like this, when most people seem to forget how much we benefited from trading and collaborating in the past, it's more important than ever to bridge the gap and to join forces. Life in the Arab world is different and that influences their story telling - the topics and the style. I am keen to learn and to be inspired - and want to help telling these stories. I want to set something against this warmongering and rather advocate friendship and respect.

This is my first film and I am interested to make it in collaboration with Germany for different reasons. The German film industry has proven in the past decades their interest in supporting young filmmakers from the MENA region. I am therefore looking for a German producer who really supports my intentions in making a film that I want to put my point of view, my identity, and not only reproducing a western view on our world. As you may know. I want their experience to v=bring this project to life in improving the making together and financing it. I already have on my team the Iraqi/Swiss producer and filmmaker Samir who is ready to be the executive or co-producer of the film. Samir has a long term experience with documentary films and I believe he's very good at this corporation for his corporations with Germany on different projects and he was on the documentary jury award in Berlinale 2017. He's also collaborating with me as a consultant.
