DOCmed is a workshop for documentary filmmakers, now in its 3rd year.

The program's goal is to assist producers and director-producers from Arabic-speaking countries in the South Mediterranean region, to develop their documentary projects, with aim towards putting each project in a position to attract international co-production/financing.

DOCmed holds sessions in documentary production, creation, financing, and exploiting latest technologies.

This year, 10 projects from Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, Syria and Libya were chosen from 61 documentary projects submitted for consideration.

They follow below - titles, directors and producers. I plan to research these with the intent being to return and highlight some of them.

Here are the complete 10:

Drifa and the lonely whales, directed by Drifa Mezenner and produced by Boualem Ziani (Algeria)

Little Eagles, directed by Mohamed Rashad and produced by Hala Lotfy (Egypt)

Une place sous le soleil (lit. “A place under the sun”), directed and produced by Karim Aitouna (Morocco)

Baba and the Colonel, directed and produced by Khalid Shamis (Libya)

Freedom (Horya), directed and produced by Alaa Mosbah (Egypt)

The sky above Alexandria, directed and produced by Ahmed Rashwan (Egypt)

I have a Picture, directed by Mohamed Zedan and produced by Mark Lotfy (Egypt)

Rue Al Amine (lit. “El Amine Street”), directed and produced by Maya Mounayar (Syria)

In Grey Depth, directed and produced by Mona Lotfy (Egypt)

Chez Wéki, directed by Walid Tayaa and produced by Asma Chibour (Tunisia)

This program is an initiative of Beirut DC (Lebanon), Eurodoc (France) and Doc à Tunis (Tunisia). It is co-financed by Euromed Audiovisual, in association with Arte (France), and has the support of Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) and the Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (AFAC).

The 2013 installment of DOCmed begins March 18.
