Edgo continues its support for the arts by sponsoring the 2024 Amman International Film Festival 

Edgo sponsors the Amman International Film Festival (AIFF), a festival that highlights emerging Arab and Jordanian talent, focusing on first-time filmmaking achievements. The festival features competitions judged by international juries and audiences and includes industry events such as master classes and seminars designed to inspire regional filmmakers. 

Edgo has provided office space for the AIFF team at The Edgo Atrium, a landmark green building located in the heart of Amman. This support enhances the festival’s operations and underscores Edgo’s commitment to cultural initiatives.

The festival’s theme underscores the importance of telling our own stories and reclaiming our narratives. AIFF aims to amplify the voices and realities of Gaza’s filmmakers to a global audience through this premiere screening.

AIFF 2024 will feature 53 films from 28 countries, including Arab and international narratives, documentaries, and short films. Highlights include 12 Arab premieres, two world premieres, and five international premieres. Films will compete for the Black Iris Trophy and cash awards, with opportunities for post-screening discussions with directors. A notable highlight is the presentation of 22 short films from Gaza, showcasing the resilience and creativity of young filmmakers.

Edgo’s sponsorship is part of its Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) strategy. Our commitment to meaningful community involvement is central to Edgo, extending support to various sectors globally, including healthcare, education, and social and cultural development.
