Alexandria, Alexandria Governorate, Egypt
Mohamed Kassaby (b. 1997, Alexandria) is an independent award-winning filmmaker, writer, and multidisciplinary visual artist. In 2020, he has officially become a member of Filmmakerscoop, as he has also been a part of Mahd/Medfest Screenwriting Workshop which was funded by the EU National Institutes. As a storyteller who wanders around the unmarked territory between fiction and documentary, his directional approach to the personal stories he tells through his films relies on the authentic depictions of the urban environment rather than a contrived and manipulated version that replicates the presence of being.
