Zain Kamal Syed is an Indo Canadian engineer turned screenwriter-director based out of Vancouver, Canada originally from Hyderabad, India. He moved to Canada in 2019 as a permanent resident. He's kind of a male Scheherazade of his time; He told his first story when he was 8. It was a story of a movie he hadn’t watched, to two of his classmates to escape their bullying for the day.
He's a graduate from InFocus Film School in Vancouver and has a certification from Sundance Rewriting Feature workshop. He has written TV pilots, features and shorts and worked on-set for multiple short films and a web series in various roles.
Some of his favorite films are: Amelie, Midnight in Paris, Tamasha, The lunch box, Kumbalangi Nights, Maheshinte Pratikaaram, The secret life of Walter Mitty, Silver Linings Playbook and Joker.
His goal is to write and direct stories that he'd love to watch in feature and short formats. His other hobbies include acting, singing, and playing Table Tennis and Pool.
