The memo was signed by the RFC Managing Director Mohannad Al Bakri and Creativity Club CEO Husam Tarawneh.

The inauguration of the center in Karak, at the club’s headquarters, comes within a series of similar Film Centers managed by the RFC in seven governorates around the Kingdom (in Irbid, Mafraq, Salt, Zarqa, Aqaba, Petra, and Wadi Rum).

The project aims to provide an educational and entertainment space for youth in the city through the film center, which will also offer training workshops in the fields of film and television. Free screenings of Arab and international movies will also be held. The project also includes a mobile cine bus equipped with modern audio-visual equipment and devices in order to create a different educational environment that meets the requirements of today’s film and TV industry.

Bakri stressed that the RFC, since its establishment, has paid special attention to the governorates, and said: “We are glad that the RFC now has an official body in Karak,” and thanked the Creativity Club for its part.

Tarawneh thanked the RFC, adding that the club considers “it a step forward and an expansion of our programs in the field of arts that will enhance the aesthetic taste of the club’s members, encourage critical thinking and improve the skills and capabilities of the youth interested in the fields of photography, montage and directing.”
