Forty-five participants will be selected for workshops led by established female filmmakers from the Arab region. The program will kick off with workshops in Cairo, Dubai, and Jeddah, followed by a visit to Netflix’s production hub in Europe. The application period is from August 17th to September 8th, with successful candidates notified on October 17th. This collaboration reinforces Netflix’s commitment to empowering women in the industry and fostering storytelling opportunities.
