Our team is made up of Yemen’s most established, award-winning filmmakers - from experienced fixers to Oscar nominated directors. We combine know-how and vision with local access and expertise. Our dream is to foster Yemen's culture in the most challenging of times and preserve the essence of it's past and present through film.
Learning & Innovation
All the freelancers we work with have taken part in our training workshops (in documentary, fiction, animation and more), ensuring that they adhere to our quality and ethical standards of filmmaking. Through our trainings, we try to meet another important objective: to promote the next generation of Yemeni filmmakers.
The Heart of Yemen’s Film Network
Over the last 6 years, we have trained and collaborated with some of Yemen's most exciting new talent, amassing an unrivalled, burgeoning network of freelance media professionals from across the country.
Authentic & Independent
The ground upon which we stand is our perspective. We are a group of Yemeni film professionals who have always aimed to shed light on the most pressing issues our country faces. We are not attached to any state institutions, political factions or receive funding from any other stakeholders.
We offer a range of film production services from online media content, video campaigns, infographics and animation to long form documentary and fiction. We offer package services as well as pre/post production services separately. Whatever filming access or skillset required in Yemen, we can provide it.
We run film training workshops at our location in Sana'a. Workshops we have offered to date include: 2-week Documentary Filmmaking Intensive, 2-week Fiction Filmmaking Intensive, Storytelling through Creative Editing, Pre-Production & Producing Skills. We will soon be expanding our curriculum to include Screenwriting and Extensive Post-Production.
In 2015, we collaborated with #SupportYemen and the British Council to launch Comra Documentary Film Camp with the vision of equipping aspiring filmmakers in war-torn Yemen with the skills to document the events around them and convey their stories to the world. Following its success, we ran more workshops on fiction filmmaking, editing, post-production and more. Follow us on Social Media for upcoming training announcements!
