18 May 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Mohamed S. Farsi Foundation and the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television are opening up a new avenue for Arab woman filmmakers with a partnership and fund that will include three new four-year full-ride graduate scholarships for UCLA Tft’s Master of Fine Arts in Directing.

Designed “to give voice to the unique perspective of Arab women,” as a statement put it, the Hani Farsi Graduate Scholarship Fund will start in the fall 2015.

London-based Saudi philanthropist, entrepreneur and film producer Hani Farsi (pictured) has long been producing and distributing films with sociopolitical undertones such as Elia Suleiman’s “The Time That Remains” and Mira Nair’s “The Reluctant Fundamentalist.” He is also co-owner of French distribution and sales company Le Pacte, which have eight films at Cannes this year, including Nanni Moretti’s “My Mother” and Palestinian dramedy “Degrade” by Arab and Tarzan Abu Nasser.

Prague — Building on a “you’re the star” theme, the Karlovy Vary Film Festival’s 50th edition will kick off with a massive street party July 3, serenaded by Czech rockers and forgoing the usual formal do at the spa town’s fabulously ornate Grandhotel Pupp.
