George David, former deputy general manager of the Royal Film Commission of Jordan (RFC) has been promoted to general manager.
David, who has a degree in film production from California State University – Northridge, headed the organisation’s production department for several years and also worked on many film and television projects in the United States and Jordan.
“The RFC provides production services for local and international cinema and television projects,” commented David.
“It also provides training workshops in all fields of filmmaking and organises screenings all over the Kingdom. I hope to help develop the organisation further,” he added.
RFC recently established a Film House, the first of its kind in Jordan. The Film House hosts regular workshops, seminars and film screenings in the Kingdom.
It includes a film library, an editing room and an equipment bank that loans cameras, sound-recording and lighting equipment to filmmakers in the country.
