(MENAFN- Jordan News Agency) Amman, Sept. 29 (Petra)-Chairman of the Higher Committee of the Jordan Festival for Arab Media (JFAM), Dr. Amjad Qadi, announced the launch of the festival's 4th session, entitled "Jerusalem," next Tuesday, in Amman.
In a press conference on Wednesday, Qadi said the event constitutes an "important, historic and strategic" move to the satellite TV stations and media production companies.
The JFAM's session, "Jerusalem," was chosen due to the status of the holy city and the Palestinian cause, as "the first central issue" at the Arab level, especially to Jordan's leadership and people, with "wide" participation from Arab countries, according to Qadi.
Palestine, he said, will officially take part in the event to highlight the Palestinian cause's developments and Hashemite custodianship over the Islamic and Christian holy sites in Al-Quds Al-Sharif.
The festival's vision, he noted, aims to attract "influential" figures in Arab media decision-making, government and private satellite TV stations, artistic production companies, media oulets and colleges.
The festival seeks to build bridges of cooperation, which would contribute to creating a "suitable" environment to faciltate media cities' contact with TV and radio stations in the Arab world, and encourage "serious" moves in Arab drama and programs, to compete in the event, according to a JFAM statement.
