As an aspiring independent filmmaker from Lebanon, I need to branch out of the local industry both to find funding for my project and to get new insights and perspectives into it. The Adam Basma project holds a personal story that hopefully, will be able to speak to people from different cultures.

My friend recently asked me: "What is your opinion regarding a career in film?". I simply answered that it's a dream, but in the arab world it's a constent struggle to acheive your dream. I chose this career, so I guess I must like the struggle?! With limited opportunities and funding, I am seeking new chances to produce the films I need to make. I am submitting to the "Film Market", because I have seen the quality of documentaries and shorts that have been produced with the help of this project. I guess it's not that I wanted to participate, I felt that I had to take my chances. In sum, I'm looking for an additional partner to join this project. A a producer is someone who believes in the project, help build the film and works hand in hand with the director. That seems exactly to be what "Online Project Market"is about.

In this short film I’m trying to recreate my exiled memories in Baghdad through the cinematographic language of unconscious and dreams. In order to achieve the creative process that lies between reality and special effects/animation, I need to develop my project with professionals and to be supported by a strong production team. That’s why I would like to participate in the Project Market.

Hello, my name is Maximilian Becht and I am a producer and writer from Germany. I have finished my studies in film production at the german film school Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg this year. So far I have produced several short films over the last few years including animation, documentary and fiction. In 2018 I founded the production company and incubator MISTER WOMBAT together with Tobias Gerginov. We have documentary and fiction feature projects in development and financing. Currently I am writing my first feature coming-of-age adventure film. As a producer I focus on story development, creative and impact producing, conceptualization and financing. In 2018 I worked with filmmakers from Sri Lanka who were part of the international class at Filmakademie. Last year I participated in the Project Market and met wonderful filmmakers. Since then I am collaborating with a lebanese director for an upcoming film project. I want to continue to work with foreign filmmakers to discover new ways of storytelling in social, cultural and geographical spaces. That is why I want to participate in the Project Market Amman again to meet upcoming filmmakers from all around the world to share their visions of filmmaking.

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.

As it is huge project discussing "The impacts of global warming and climate changes on Egypt and Egyptians" through human treatment, so I hope to get an international co-producer to be able to make an international documentary film.

International co-production is one of the most enriching experiences in a film career, bringing new perspective to the project that one could never see from their own vantage point, exchanging experiences and always emerging a better filmmaker for it. Having previous experience as a producer in co-production, as well as the Robert Bosch Film Prize, I come to the project market with my first short film as a director seeking the 'great perhaps', hoping to meet a German producer who'd be as excited and passionate about my project, standing on common ground and combining our expertise to realize a film that we'd both be proud to call ours.

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.

I want to get in touch with international filmmakers and so enter the international sector for film producing. Through the common language, the medium film, one can deliberate the different cultural perspectives on living in this world. It's a pleasure for me to get the opportunity to create narratives representing the fears and hopes of our time. Beyond that, in times of global warming, social injustices and wars the international association gets more important. To make society aware of it, to hold together and to create a greater, global force against these grievances.

I am interested in storytelling that triggers imagination, tries to discover a cinematic language and challenges social and cultural prejudices. While living in Egypt, Sudan and Morocco, I heard many stories that need and want to be told, but was also lucky to get to know many young filmmakers who are able and keen to tell them. Indeed, my experiences in the Arab world make me particularly eager for deepening my cinematic relationship with the region and therefore I'm looking forward to exchanging stories, experiences and cinematic visions with my Arab peers on eye-level. The prospect of getting to know kindred spirits in filmmakers who have the courage to take risks, experiment to find their own visual language and enable audiences to experience different ways of telling, showing and seeing reality is very exciting. Thus, by participating in the Project Market I can engage in an intercultural exchange that creates an inclusive space of diverse perceptions in which much needed discussions about cinema and film can take shape. It would be great to be part of this platform that bridges international relations and filmmaking not primarily for funding purposes but with the goal of finding common ground, forming long-term partnerships across borders and jointly develop cinematic responses to our contemporary world. As an emerging producer, taking part in the Project Market would be a great opportunity to take the next step in my career, learn from both my peers and industry professionals, find future collaborators and hopefully contribute to the success of an ambitious international coproduction team that is willing to push boundaries together.

Independent Cinema offers a strange sense of accomplishment while in the process of making. Everything's against you; there's no time, and even less money - you bring a bottle of glue, chip in twenty bucks, and hope you all make it through the day. If you manage to finish it and it actually turns out to be pretty good, it's thrilling. Therefore, the project market place is a great opportunity for all participating filmmakers to bring their ideas to the next level.

I am always looking for opportunities to be part of such a market to connect with filmmakers, writers and producers from all over the world. I already participated in Project Market and it was a remarkable chance to make contacts and meet new people. I'm hoping to relive the experience this year as well and get the opportunity to pitch my new project as well as find colloboration to apply for the Film Prize.

This is my first independent film, I started making this feature documentary 14 months ago by looking into the life of an Iraqi woman activist and an idol of mine (Hanna Edward). As I dove into her life I started to find many parallels between her past in the 60s and 70s and my present life in Iraq. This contrast moved me to making this film in an attempt to uncover the complexities of being a woman in the Iraqi society. Later, a third woman "Fayza" joins the story by moving into Hanaa's house as a refugee from ISIS ruled region and a sex/kidnap survivor. The three of us have a shared destiny, which is how to navigate living as independent women in a fragmented country like Iraq. Becoming part of the online project market community will help my film evolve and come to life, shedding life on some of the most marginalized groups in the Arab world.
