Wisam Al-Jafari’s short film, Ambience
was one of 17 films selected out of 2,000 international submissions for a Cinéfondation
award, a prize given to emerging filmmakers. The jury will award three Cinéfondation
prizes on May 23 at the Palais des Festivals Buñuel Theatre.
This recognition also marks the first time Dar al-Kalima is represented at this prestigious festival. Congratulations to Wisam and his faculty mentors!
We wish Wisam the best as he heads to Cannes next month for the festival! Congratulations to the faculty mentors and staff at Dar al-Kalima University that made this work possible! What a joy to support these creative leaders!
