Filmlab offers 2 to 3 residency opportunities per year using developed partnerships with international film production companies. Residency opportunities are designed as internships for Palestinian filmmakers abroad, where filmmakers develop their knowledge and skill on-set while offering their assistance toward production or post-production.
