Cinema Archives

NADI LEKOL NAS focuses on archiving cinematographic productions. It restores, digitizes, promotes and distributes Lebanese and Arab independent films to make them accessible to the widest audience. In the last two decades, the association has produced more than 60 DVDs, and distributed more than 70 Arab films, connecting directors to various publics.

Today, NADI LEKOL NAS is working on a project entitled “Beit El Cinema” (Cinema’s house). It comprises a research platform, which grants access to a large collection of archives from Lebanese, Syrian, Palestinian and Egyptian cinema. Its objective is to facilitate research and provide access to a variety of archived material in relation to Lebanese and Levantine cinematography such as films, books, press reviews, screenplays, Masters and Ph.D. theses, and posters.
