Description

Middle West is a film development, incubation, and co-production company which provides development services and sells films that are culturally authentic. Both local and international films that simply speak to humans of all races and cultures. With a focus on regionally branded material... narratives that intelligently fuse, or speak simply to the sensibilities of East and West, we're banded by the independant spirit and an anti-excess production philosophy.

Objective

As creators of films we believe in striking a fine line between art and commerce, between the authentic and the branded, the eastern and the western, and using modern means to grow and expand both our bottom line, but –most importantly our philosophy of global relations between peoples. We want to share our culture with the world, without selling out, and without masking our identity, and without pandering to values that are not our own. We may like to break taboos for a living, and spark some controversy in our work, but never is the spirit of independent and free cinema far from our hearts. We are seeking to be part of a new world cinema; and an Egyptian cinema we can be proud of once again. Sharing what is unique about each other, and at the same time exploring all we have in common as a human race… this is what Middle West Films is about. To meet the aspirations of cultural co-existance of the East and West alike… we must engage, in a positive, well harnessed, and forthcoming dialogue. That doesn’t mean everyone’s going to like what we have to say… but we are clear about one thing… we want to change the world.
