Abstract ملخص
The Arab world even though quite different, yet very similar to Africa in terms of stage or status in the movement. There are a lot of projects that are running on both continents that when shared could possibly create an atmosphere to cross collaborate and to increase content from both ends. For example the Afrocine project is one that can be showcased in the Arab region and encourage more Arabic speaking people to write about their film industry.There are a few African countries that are not yet in our movement who are Arabic speaking like Sudan, Niger, Mali, Chad, etc. These are all countries that could participate in projects from the Arab world. This session will focus on WISCOM a committee for organising on the African continent and ways we can build partnership through programs and projects to maximise the potential of our continents.
