Independent Film & Television College
is the first of its kind in Iraq.

It was set up in Baghdad in 2004 and provides free-of-charge intensive short courses in film and television technique, theory and production.

We train Iraqi filmmakers and also support their filmmaking by providing production facilities and information about funding and further training.
