The Red Sea Fund also celebrated the announcement of the 10 recipients of its 2022 programme that were confirmed as recipients of post-production grants. The fund now in its third year, has a strong track record of bringing films to audiences with 100% of last years funded films presented at the inaugural edition of the Festival.
The fiction features and documentaries originate from Palestine, Iraq, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Rwanda, Benin, Yemen, and Tunisia.
The 10 backed films are: The Last Projectionist, directed by Alex Bakri (Palestine, Germany) Feature Documentary; De Abdul A Leila, directed by Leila Albayaty (Germany, Belgium, France, Iraq) Feature Documentary; Slave, directed by Mansour Assad (Saudi Arabia) Feature Fiction; Nezouh, directed by Soudade Kaadan (France, United Kingdom, Lebanon) Feature Fiction; Phiona, A Girl From Madrid, directed by Salah Issaad (Rwanda, Benin, France) Feature Fiction; Ashkal, directed by Youssef Chebbi (Tunisia) Feature Fiction; The Burdened, directed by Amr Gmal (Yemen) Feature Fiction; TUK-TUK EYE, directed by Dhyaa Joda (Iraq) Feature Documentary; The Cardinal's Arm, directed by Fayçal Baghriche (France, Algeria) Feature Documentary; and Suspended, directed by Myriam El Hajj (Lebanon, France, Norway) Feature Documentary.

The new and exciting plethora of directors in the selection brings new perspectives to the conversation. They are presenting bold and daring stories we haven't seen before. The industry is beginning to flourish and it's encouraging to see so many filmmakers eager to make their mark, our role is to nurture and support this movement."
