Middle East Film Initiative

The Middle East Film Initiative (MEFI), based in New York City, was launched by Ruth Priscilla Kirstein in 2013. The MEFI conducts

  • interdisciplinary training
  • curriculum development
  • research
  • outreach
  • advocacy

with the purpose of promoting diversity, and creating equal employment opportunities in US film, TV and new media for local media and entertainment professionals of Middle Eastern descent, or working on topics of importance to local Middle Eastern communities.

The MEFI community serves those involved in the making and life of film, TV and new media, such as actors, writers, composers, designers, technicians, producers, journalists, academics, casting directors, agents, distributors and policy makers. The MEFI offers an ongoing forum to connect the mainstream with the independent film market, and artists with their audiences. The group is particularly attentive to the role women play both behind and in front of the camera, and aims to diversify the representation of women in film, TV and new media.

Through training sessions and research, the MEFI reaches communities where they are, far from high-cost, seasonal and often mission based events presented by established organizations. Momentum grows as participants follow the project and meet more participants with similar interests from other backgrounds.
