Comra Academy is a foundation aimed at empowering Yemen's young filmmakers through mentorship and training programs, film screenings, online film festivals to showcase their work, networking opportunities and independent film production (through its sister company, Comra Films). Through advanced training and mentorship programs, Comra hopes to enhance the visual and cinematic language of Yemeni filmmakers and help them break into the competitive film industry in the Arab region and globally. 

Since 2017, Comra has trained some of Yemen’s most exciting new talent and has become an ever-growing hub of Yemen's film network in Sana'a and beyond. 
Comra believes that - despite the many challenges Yemen and Yemenis are facing today - it is also the most pressing time for independent Yemeni filmmakers to reclaim their own narrative and change the way the outside world sees them and their country.
