CeeFilm Beirut is a cinema collective/company founded by filmmaker and author Rouba Atiyeh. CeeFilm Beirut produces films with an authentic uninhibited cinematic expression. It focuses on producing films that bring suppressed narratives to light. The company collaborates with filmmakers and producers from the MENA region; including Iraq, Egypt, Jordan, Palestine and Lebanon. CeeFilm Beirut offers documentary filmmaking training in addition to fiction script development consultation in cooperation with our partners, aiming to help emerging filmmakers and create new networks where they are most needed.

Our team works closely together, designing the production process in cooperative and community-based modules, capturing the human experience in-between cinematic frames.
