Ammon News - The Royal Film Commission (RFC) on Tuesday signed an agreement with Think Barter, an Amman-based B2B network, to help freelance filmmakers affected by the fallout of the coronavirus pandemic.

Professional filmmakers registered on the RFC's production services directory will have access to "Think Reel"; the program introduced under the agreement, according to an RFC statement.

Under the agreement, "Think Barter" will exempt those who will join the program from a JD350 annual membership fee and will enable them to network with other peers who are members of the "Think Barter" network.

Furthermore, the network will provide member filmmakers with ample opportunities to enter into partnership with other entities and will be supported for any services they provide. They will also be able to access coaching and training in their domain of work.

"Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, we, at the Royal Film Commission, have been thinking about ways to support filmmakers in Jordan. With the scarcity of financial support and the cancellation of many projects, freelance filmmakers have lost many job opportunities and thus their economic situation is threatened," said Muhannad Bakri, Director-General of the RFC.

He expressed the hope that the "Think Reel" program will provide them with job opportunities and alleviate the difficult situation which they are living.

The founder and CEO of the "Think Barter" network, Nisreen Obeidat, indicated that the agreement will open horizons for freelance filmmakers by joining it, noting that the network will work to link those professionals with companies, help them secure new job opportunities and support them to develop.

According to the statement, an open session will be streamed on the channels of the RFC on social media networks to explain the content of the "Think Reel" program and its delivery mechanism and answer any questions by filmmakers.
