The event, which was organized by the Fondation Liban Cinema, the CCF, and the Ministry of Culture, witnessed an announcement by the Central Bank for a subsidized loan to support the sector. The sector holds tremendous potential, and, if supported adequately, will place Lebanon on the cultural and touristic map thanks to the talents behind many of the works being done.
