Cinema Mirkaz was formed by a group of filmmakers and film lovers who believe in the impact of film on society and see it as a powerful vehicle for culture and education, especially in such an important time as the cinema in Saudi Arabia is forming its own identity. Cinema Mirkaz believes in the necessity of sharing our different experiences, and the need to learn from each other, while establishing stronger connections with different film experts and institutes from the region and around the world. Therefore, they organize film screenings, discussions, and tailor-made workshops stressing the importance of studying and analyzing world cinema. They also offer a space for local filmmakers to screen their films and connect with the audience while connecting with each other. The space aims to help local filmmakers to learn, connect, share, and educate while practicing creative expression.
