The Arab British Centre and MENA Arts UK are running a programme of virtual lunchtime "Hangouts" platforming MENA+ (Middle East, North Africa and surrounding area) professionals working in the live and recorded arts - film, tv, music, and stage.

About

The Arab British Cetre is delighted to announce the return of its Friday Hangout talk series, this time in partnership with MENA Arts UK. This “Hangout Takeover” will focus on platforming MENA+ (Middle East, North Africa and surrounding area) professionals working in the live and recorded arts, inviting guests to discuss their work and answer live questions from the public in an informal setting via Zoom.

Kicking off the Takeover is Sally El Hosaini, a Welsh-Egyptian film director and screenwriter, whose acclaimed debut feature, My Brother The Devil, picked up major prizes at Sundance, Berlin and London Film Festivals. She was selected for BAFTA’s 2017 Elevate programme and was subsequently invited to sit on BAFTA’s Film Committee. Currently, Sally is in pre-production on her second feature film, The Swimmers, based on the true life story of Syrian refugee and Olympic swimmer Yusra Mardini.

Sally will be chatting with Arian Nik, a British-Iranian actor born & raised in Leeds. They’ll be discussing Sally’s career as a film director and screenwriter, and exploring the challenges MENA+ creatives face working in film.

All are welcome to join the Friday Hangouts, which will run from 1-2pm GMT every other Friday from 5 February. Registration: https://www.arabbritishcentre.org.uk/whatson/friday-hangout-mena-arts-uk-takeover-1-with-sally-el-hosaini/
