It seems the buzz words for Lebanese movies are Shankaboot and Caramel… However, Lebanon has a lot, and I do mean a lot of untapped or undiscovered cinematography talent.
When they are discovered, it’s usually by another, more culturally-conscious country where art and movies are celebrated instead of pirated and sold for less than a dollar.
Most of you, including me, will recognize Nova in Sin el Fil as a rock and metal venue, but these guys are dedicating each Sunday night for Lebanese directors, producers, film students, and other creative individuals involved in the film industry. Apart from paying tribute or appreciating previous projects and accomplishments, the participants will have the chance to network and collaborate on future endeavors.
With the absence of any official body or organization to help incubate and develop the Lebanese film industry, this initiative by the Nova Frames in Motion team is a much-needed opportunity for many movie-making entrepreneurs.
So, if you’re a filmmaker, maker sure you submit your work and be featured, with Q&A sessions and discussions about the short Lebanese films, short foreign films and of course a feature film selected by the audience of the previous week.
Entrance is just 10$ with one free drink, and it starts THIS Sunday April 3!
Here’s the program for Saturday night

I blog about my unusual life and happenings. I'm Lebanese with a nomadic lifestyle. I hope to eventually settle down somewhere and become a neuromarketer
