Within the framework of the 2019 edition of the Documentary Convention #DocC19, NAAS Executive Director Jowe Harfouche co-facilitated the Expert Group for the module “Distribution, Circulation & Sales.”


The module examined the development of funding and support schemes, whilst exploring alternative models and new opportunities of distribution – both traditional and digital. With a focus on self-sustainability, cooperation, exchange between regions as well as people, and taking into account existing infrastructures and different contexts. In addition, the module aimed to open constructive dialogue on developing a sustainable and self-sufficient framework for documentary film distribution within, and between, the Arab region, Europe and the rest of the world.
