Jassim Alsaady

Jassim Alsaady is a Berlin-based director with over 12 years of experience in commercials, corporate videos, documentaries, and feature films. He has worked with international production teams across the Middle East, drawing from his wealth of knowledge and experience in the region.

He has worked on films for the Oprah Winfrey Network in Saudi Arabia, shot IMAX documentaries on pilgrims in the holy city of Mecca, and worked with American documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock's "Where in the World is Osama bin Laden?"

He is currently working with acclaimed German director Tom Tykwer's latest feature, "A Hologram for the King," an adaptation of the novel by American author Dave Eggers and starring Tom Hanks.

Over the years he has tried to push boundaries – and encourage a young generation of filmmakers in Saudi Arabia, a conservative Gulf kingdom with not a single public cinema.

Still, he believes there are stories to be found everywhere – in Saudi Arabia and beyond – and he is currently hard at work on a series of projects that he believes will soon find their way to the big screen.
