Independent Shabab Foundation (ISF), active since 2006, is a non-profit NGO working in the fields of theatre and cinema. It was founded by a number of artists and culture activists with the aim of supporting independent artists and contributing to raise awareness and promote and develop taste in art in Egypt.
