The Royal Film Commission – Jordan (RFC) and the Ministry of Culture signed a Memorandum of Understanding earlier this week to renew the ‘Film Caravan’ project for one more year. The MoU was signed by Minister of Culture, H.E. Basma Nsour, and the RFC’s Managing Director, George David, at the Ministry’s headquarters.
The renewal comes as an acknowledgment of the importance of the project in providing film activities outside the capital Amman through showcasing movies free of charge in all Governorates. This gives the audience the opportunity to watch and appreciate local productions and allows film buffs in the Governorates to interact with different cultures through local, Arab and international movies, the release stated.
The RFC organised last year 11 film screenings in all the Kingdom’s Governorates under the “Film Caravan” project.
David added that the “Film Caravan” is not a luxury but a necessity that must be supported by all means. The release stated that the RFC is aware of the importance of communication with the local community outside the capital and has established six film centers in Zarqa, Mafraq, Salt, Aqaba, Wadi Rum and Petra, where workshops and film screenings are organised all year round.
