In 2021, the Royal Film Commission and the Ministry of Education signed a memorandum of understanding for the Film in Schools project, whereby screenings are organized in a number of Government schools and selected schools under the umbrella of Education and Military Culture Directorate in the Kingdom. The RFC works on selecting films, which are then approved by the Ministry. It also provides analytical materials for the films and the screening requirements for the schools participating in the project. Quality local, Arab and international films that are appropriate for the school environment are selected, providing the opportunity for the students to discuss the content with experts in filmmaking, film analysis and moderation.
The project aims to enhance creative ideas and develop students' critical thinking by acquiring the necessary knowledge to analyze films and disassemble their various elements from the main idea (logline), story, characters, dramatic structure, in addition to sound, photography, lighting and colors.
