This event will examine issues such as the ethics of film production and media's role in shaping awareness of communities and culture.
Saudi Film Commission (SFC) will host a virtual panel discussion today, April 30, under the supervision of the Ministry of Culture, about the documentation of individual and community experiences on film, according to a report by Arab News.
The event is part of an ongoing series of panel discussions hosted by the Saudi Film Commission designed to enhance communication within the film community in the Kingdom by creating spaces for dialogue and the sharing of opinions, while identifying and exploring proposals and views on developing the sector, and motivating industry professionals and others with an interest in filmmaking.
During this virtual event, a number of topics related to the role of film and the media will be discussed, including the responsibilities of professionals in the film industry, such as directors, producers, and screenwriters, in relation to their communities, the ethics of film production, and the impact of media on public understanding.
By exploring the documented experiences of filmmakers and their personal views, and examining the development of critical theories and practices of film documentation, one aim of the conference is to emphasize the importance of media as well as ways in which communities and societies can preserve their identities through cinema.
