The Mobile Film School Initiative is a platform for newcomers / migrants to advance by means of an intensive course in filmmaking. They will develop practical skills and professional networks, with the aim of then being able to work in film production. The idea is to create a functional and sustainable format that can be implemented (initially) in Istanbul, and to establish a broad network that supports the initiative. The initiative is a response to the gap between newcomers and the professional field of the arts, and specifically the film industry.
