      JORDANIAN INDIE CINEMA CONTINUES FESTIVAL MARCH IN 2007

      (JORDAN - 10/2/2007) Two film festivals have selected five indie
      Jordanian films, by the Amman Filmmakers Cooperative, for the month of
      March.

      The 6th edition of the Emirates Film Competition, UAE, has selected
      four independent Jordanian short films. The films are Sharar by Saleh
      Kasem, Ammar Quttaineh, and Hazim Bitar; Little Feet by Aseel Mansour;
      What a Job by Mohamad Aboujarad, Omar Saleh, and Hazim Bitar; and Ash
      by Rabee Zureikat. The Emirates Film Competition is directed and
      founded by Masoud Amrallah, also a programmer at Dubai Int'l Film
      Festival.

      The Filmfestival Augsburg 2007, Germany, will screen three indie
      Jordanian films as part of its New Arab Cinema program. The films are
      Overdose by Ammar Quttaineh, Sharar, and Little Feet. The program is
      organized by curator Irit Neidhardt of Mec Films.

      Cooperative outreach liaison Rabee Zureikat said "since profit is not
      part of the equation, the ultimate payoff for every independent
      Jordanian filmmaker is to find an interested audience for his or her
      film." Zureikat, who directed the short film Ash, continued
      "if Jordan is our studio, the world is our stage."

      The Amman Filmmakers Cooperative (AFC) is a not-for-profit cultural
      initiative and talent incubator. Founded in 2003, the AFC promotes
      independent Arab filmmaking through training, production support, and
      distribution.
