Tabish Habib is a Pakistani award winning filmmaker who's debut short film "May I Have this seat?" has received critical acclaim across Europe, Asia and North America. He has an undergraduate degree from the University of San Francisco in Media studies, Business and Film Studies as well as a Master of Arts in Film & Television Production from the Met Film School located at London's prestigious Ealing Studios.
Tabish is focused on writing and directing original stories that focus on rebellious, free spirited, misfit characters living in largely restrictive patriarchal societies. These stories are a mirror image of the world he grew up in (both in Pakistan and the U.S) and provide a nuanced perspective that allows audiences to understand that despite how different we might think we are, ultimately we are all going through the same struggles as humans.
Tabish worked as an Associate Producer and Script Supervisor on the hugely successful feature film "Joyland" directed by Saim Sadiq, which won multiple awards at Cannes and is Pakistan's official submission for the Academy Awards 2023.
His music video for Mai Dhai Band's "Sarak Sarak" won the Bee Hype award in 2014 and the documentary "Unforgettable Khusargang" was part of the official selection at the Cinema Verde Festival 2017.
