SHARJAH, 22nd January, 2018 (WAM) — Aspiring screenwriters were given the opportunity to learn from award-winning Egyptian TV and film writer Dr. Ashraf Mohamed at the Sharjah Media City (Shams) Scriptwriting Workshop earlier this month.

Graduates, writers, entrepreneurs and individuals working in the media sector attended the workshop led by Dr. Ashraf, who is Head of Scenario Department in High Cinema Institute (Cairo) and received a Shams certification of participation on completion of the course.

Director of Sharjah Media City Shihab Al Hammadi said, “Shams seeks to create a community of media and cinematic production companies.
