Director Biography - Reem Morsi

Reem Morsi is a writer/director with a diverse career, from professional scuba diver/underwater photographer to human rights work at the United Nations and many international organizations in Thailand, the Middle East & North Africa, Kosovo and other parts of the world to becoming a writer/director, her lifelong passion.

Morsi also wrote and directed “The Door” produced by CFC and had its world premier at Whistler Film Festival 2016 and starting its festival tour now.

Morsi’s first feature script “Bootleg” received development funding at the San Francisco Film Society March 2016 and is currently at an early stage of development. Morsi also won first place for her short script “Show & Tell” at the WIFT/BravoFact pitch competition 2016. Currently “Show & Tell” is starting its festival tour and was well received by BravoFact. Reem was also selected as a participant at the TIFF Talent Lab for September 2016.
