Director Biography - Hashim Hashim

He is an Interior Architect and gained his certificate in this field from UiTM University, Malaysia with an excellent grade that enabled him to get first place among all classmates.
It wasn’t just architecture, but also filming that reflected Hashim's apparent elegance derived from his Malaysian Teacher's remark, who is one of the top ten Directors in his country, to the promising talent he owns. As a result, Hashim started focusing on the art of photography and worked hard to keep it in progress.
After his graduation, this young man along with his team members participated and won a first place award in a short film competition held by the Cultural British Council in Yemen whose first five winners were granted a training course in film directing on the hands of British filmmakers in Cairo.
This experience encouraged him along with his creative team to progress in film production and succeeded in fulfilling a twenty-minute- film named, "Misconception" aimed to reflect a brilliant picture about Yemenis' religion, identity and their strong correlation with traditions. This film has been displayed effectively in a number of international festivals whose continual success pushed Hashim forward to attend other fields such as advertising and documentary film production with both unusual notions and impressive techniques.
