Our student in Harpers Bazaar

2 Jan 2018

Our T4 film student, Salma Azzam was featured in Harpers Bazaar Arabia. As the curtain lifts on the 14th annual Dubai International Film Festival, Bazaar talks to six pioneers guiding the changing face of an embryonic-cum-contemporary regional film industry, each representing a proliferation of creatives using their work as a mouthpiece for the Middle East. Directors, producers, writers and filmmakers, each with their own definitive experience of life in this region, they use their unique cinematic narratives to bring our culture to the fore. By chronicling history and amplifying perspectives of society in 21st century Arabia and beyond, these visionaries cast light over a region oft shrouded in mystery. They are leaders in their fields and where they go, hopefully many more will follow, allowing a burgeoning film movement to blossom into a mature industry.
