Two meetings will be organized to strengthen the beneficiaries’ management capacities and to enhance their knowledge and professional skills in relation to their project areas and features. Each encounter will take place in a different location, and will focus on capacity building and networking activities amongst sub-grantees, especially women, with the active participation of the consortium partners and invited specialists.

The second capacity-building activity will take place in Beirut mid 2018, possibly on the occasion of the Lebanese Film Festival.
Both activities will include different training sessions, organized by the consortium members and associate, on specific topics such as: Project management and reporting, Researching on relevant topics regarding the image and role of women in the film industry in two or more of the seven target countries, Pitching, Co-production, Financing, Awareness raising, and Advocacy and Lobbying.
