With over 20 films and counting, AFS counters the one-dimensional narrative in mainstream media about refugees, and catalyzes the next generation of storytellers and creators amongst displaced youth. Azraq Film School centers youth refugees in their own narrative and creates resources and space for the stories that they want to tell.
The results of the school:
- 100+ hours of filmmaking and technical skill training
- Over 50 Syrian refugee and West Bank/Gaza displaced youth trained in directing, acting, producing, writing and editing
- Over 20 student-made and produced films from Azraq refugee camp, Azraq town, and Rahmallah, West Bank communities.
