TFF Forum 2017

The Forum is a serious attempt to broaden the network of film-making and networking in Lebanon among young filmmakers. It is an open door to discuss production and distribution problematic in Lebanon and the Middle East.

This initiative gives accredited attendees a chance to pitch their movies projects and meet international directors and producers guests of the Festival, along with our Jury Members, International Festival representatives, the press and representatives of funding institutions and production houses. In 2016, 3 movies were supported through the TFF Forum.

Along the 2 afternoons dedicated to Round Tables covering all cinema industry issues, networking and pitching sessions are also organized, as well as specialized workshops. The Forum is expected to occur on April 29th and 30th, 2017.

The TFF Forum is not a public event.
It is open for accredited participants only.

Coordinator: Ghassan Khouja
