Youth Video Training project in Palestine has started in the year 2000. Over the period of 2000 – 2009, the project evolved from an isolated experimental venture to a regular experience. Thanks to the expertise and financial support from several partners. More than a hundred and twenty boys and girls participated in the programme and produced 23 short films on different issues of their choice. The quality of production was beyond our expectation. Therefore, some of these movies were screened not only in many Arab countries, but also in some European countries and Australia.
The experience has led some professionals and young filmmakers in Palestine to establish the “Young Palestinian Filmmakers Society” in the year 2009 and was officially registered with the Palestinian Ministry of Interior and the Ministry of culture as an NGO society.
