Seen Studiois a training program and a development platform for feature films by first or second time filmmakers.
Through a hybrid selection process, the program will scout for authentic works by innovative filmmakers, and involve them in a rigorous mentorship process, containing several workshops over the course of 9 months, then connect them to three regional pitching events to present the films and find creative and financial support.
The Studio is a creative, financial, and co-production lab that ultimately aims to elevate the quality, uniqueness of Egyptian independent film, promote original film voices, help them find partners and financiers and increase their feasibility, and help widen the exposure and viewership of these films around the world.

The New Cinema School
An alternative school for creative and independent audiovisual media studies, based in Alexandria.
The New Cinema School is being developed to launch in 2023 and will offer opportunity for young aspiring filmmakers to nurture their talents and equip them with the needed skills and knowledge, as well as grow as part of a creative community. It ultimately aims at creating a hub for independent storytellers from the whole country to collaborate, share knowledge and create critical and innovative narratives.
