At the first there was the Talent!
I work in the theater field since an early age, for almost 30 years I was fascinated by the magic of the stage when I first got the chance of acting along with my father on the stages of Kuwait.
Besides being passionate about theater, I had a powerful passion towards the talent I was gifted and to every other talent tends to attract my soul, and so I got fascinated by the idea of searching and haunting talents in different creative fields, and with growing up If I may say I wished to be one of those talents haunters.
I worked with the crème de la crème of the art scene in Alexandria, I also got the honor of working among other creative groups in Egypt and abroad; In Sweden, Austria, Scotland, Jordan and Lebanon. I also worked as a program coordinator for a theater forum that used to be organized by the organization I work for in collaboration with the Bibliotheca Alexandrina.
When it comes to cinema, I enjoyed working with the late film maker “Asmaa El Bakry” in her film “Violence and Mockery”, also with director “Ibrahim El Batot” in his film “Hawi”, plus many other short films and graduation projects.
All of these past experiences and endeavors led clearly to my passion towards searching for the best and the brightest of talents, and to give them along with other researchers and art lovers a chance, a place where they seek a coherent learning and practice. And right here at this point comes our idea; “The Arts Talents Association”
The independent film industry is to be considered a valuable medium for adding to both the economic and social aspects of our lives, it opens the door for freedom of expression, knowledge and highlights the different social issues surrounding us. It also creates a fair number of job opportunities.
Every community needs a cultural and a modern art scene to push its development, unfortunately in a marginally centralized Egypt, you can only find the good valuable opportunities in the capital city of Cairo, with limited tryouts in other cities with a huge lack of well-trained individuals and production needs.
A nonprofit independent cinematic organization in Alexandria, a true voice and supporter for the independent film making and industry far from the centralized movements in the capital; an organization working on three different programs:
This solution embodies the idea of continuity by combining between training, production and following up.
