Initiated by Ashkal Alwan in 2006, Video Works is a grant and screening platform aimed at supporting the development, production and diffusion of new projects by artists and filmmakers residing in Lebanon. Every year in September, the Video Works jury selects six to ten proposals. Selected artists are given a grant of up to $5,000 and support from a jury member to realise their project. The videos are screened in June each year.

We are pleased to announce the names of our four grantees for the seventh edition of Video Works. Congratulations to Ahmad Al Trabolsi, Toni Geitani, Johnny Hchaime and Ieva Saudargaite.

The jury for this year’s Video Works was composed of Tamara Al Samerraei, Vatche Boulghourjian, Marie Muracciole and Ghassan Salhab.
