Polar meets Solar
International student cultural exchange and short film workshop

Polar meets Solar, the international student cultural exchange and short film workshop is an annual 18-day project of The Foundation. The Foundation has developed partnerships with other international film schools and in a tri-lateral exchange, 6 students from each institute make short films together in cross-cultural teams.
The resulting short films have won international acclaim and have aired on the History Channel and over the GTV network for Africa.

Polar meets Solar is coordinated by Christel de Wit and David Johnson, directors of The Mohamed Amin Foundation.
