About

Mashroua, which means project in Arabic, is an initiative involving several artists and filmmakers to create an entity capable of producing and supporting independent films in the region.
The company focuses on producing and financing films that tackle subjects and themes, which may not be popular in the traditional commercial film market in the region.
The aim is to help build a new genre of film production, which is different from the traditionally structured hierarchal approach, but rather focuses more on participatory as well as reactive innovation, integrating the artists and filmmakers with real stories and the real people in those stories, and hoping to bring a new genre of cinema which is closer and more familiar to people and tells their stories with genuineness and sincerity.
