The Royal Film Commission announces the "Narrator" screenwriter workshop, which is an annual workshop held for five days, in which a number of independent Arab screenwriters participate with the scenario of their first or second long scenario film. The screenwriters joining the workshop will work individually with mentors, who are a handful of internationally renowned screenwriters. Individual meetings are aimed to support participants, raise their writing style, and helping them to develop their narrative projects creatively. In the past fifteen years, the "Narrator" workshop has been supported by 114 screenwriters, and a number of the graduates of the workshop has successfully photographed and produced their films. They also toured regional and international film festivals that received many awards. For more information on the completed alumni projects of Rawy, visit the success stories page.
