Today, the Red Sea International Film Festival opens applications for the Red Sea Lodge, delivered in
partnership with TorinoFilmLab.
Returning for the second year, the Lodge provides intensive training, mentorship, creative and
professional development, and next-level industry opportunities to talented filmmakers from across the
Arab world. Twelve project teams, six from Saudi and six from the Arab world, comprising director(s),
producer(s), and scriptwriter(s), will participate in five workshops (four online and one on-site), before
competing for two awards of US$100,000 each. All projects will also be eligible to apply for production
funding through the Festival – a new structure that allows the program to enable and support a larger
number of projects.
