The Jesuits Cultural Center in Alexandria

For the last 10 years, the film school in the Jesuits Cultural Centre has been the only place in Alexandria that teaches filmmaking. The program is a long term workshop that usually lasts from 1 to 2 years. The program accepts from 8 to 12 students each workshop and focuses mainly on independent and low-budget filmmaking. By the end of each workshop, each student makes a short that s/he directs and all the rest of the students work as the main crew.


In 2014, Rufy’s Films and Fig Leaf Studios co-produced the 8 final short film projects for the students of the 5th workshop, that were completed in 2015.
