As part of the Quality of Life Program’s “Establishment of Professional Cultural Associations” project, which is part of the Saudi Ministry of Culture’s non-profit sector strategy, the first professional film association in Saudi Arabia’s history was established.
It includes the development of 16 professional associations in 13 cultural sectors, intending to create a varied system of non-profit organizations in various cultural sectors and across Saudi Arabia.
The association’s board of directors is chaired by Mishaal Al-Mutairi
Al-Mutairi emphasized the relevance of the Ministry of Culture’s non-profit sector policy, which allowed the Film Society to be established as a professional umbrella that brings together professionals in the area.
The Film Society is exceptional in Saudi Arabia because it is the only professional organization dedicated to the membership and representation of film industry professionals.
Its membership extends to include both interested and amateurs.
