Media Fund for Coexistence
Founded by an Israeli organization dedicated to film and the power of storytelling, Greenhouse brings together filmmakers from countries throughout the Middle East—from Israel to Jordan, Syria, Egypt and more. Over the course of a year-long fellowship, filmmakers meet to work on scripts with mentors from the likes of Sundance, Tribeca, and Canal Plus. The result: better made films and deep connections between a diverse group of storytellers. To date, 200 filmmakers have participated in the program, 113 concepts have been developed, and 37 films have made it to the screen, including an Israeli film that was nominated for an Academy Award.
