Brief description of the project: Gaza lacks cinema, in general cinemas have been burned and closed its doors at the beginning of the first intifada in 1987. Last cinema in Gaza Strip was Samer cinema which has been burned at that time. This led to the stop displaying local or international films, and thus lower domestic production to the level that we could say there is no film industry in Gaza strip nowadays. All these factors left negative impact on cinema as culture. Constraint of particular concern, that there is no financial support to make films with local talents in Gaza Strip who is able to do great and complete work. Considering the issues highlighted above, we come with the idea of the mobile cinema in order to give the Palestinian talents in Gaza Strip the chance to present and promote their work.
