Camera, Lights, Education: The Emergence of Film Studies

Bahrain requires a greater number of skilled filmmakers and animators who can capture and present the diverse stories and events that take place within the country. However, the lack of opportunities for students to pursue these career paths has resulted in a scarcity of qualified professionals. The introduction of a new major in this field is expected to produce successful filmmakers and animators who can effectively showcase the unique narratives of the island, and possibly even gain recognition on an international level. But is earning a professional degree a must to enter the filming industry? Or is experience enough?
