The Amman Film Industry Days (AFID), the industry arm of the Amman International Film Festival – Awal Film, will take place primarily online from August 31st to September 2nd, 2020, whereas certain activities would take place in a “hybrid” (physical and online) format.
An exciting forum that combines sessions and workshops on topics of importance to film industry professionals, AFID will also be the stage to present 14 narrative and documentary feature-length projects by Jordanian and Arab filmmakers, in both development and post-production stages, through its pitching platforms. The selected participants will pitch their film projects online to an independent jury where support, in the form of cash and in-kind prizes, will be awarded to the best projects/pitches to help bring their films to completion.
