About the Director

A member of L’Etna, the Experimental Cinema Workshop, Sabrina Idiri Chemloul directed her first short film, ‘Ces Images Qui me Regardent’ in 2002. She then pursued her career in Canada and the United States, where she directed another short film, ‘Mario’s Flower’ in 2005. She collaborated as a script supervisor on various independent feature films and television shows (HBO, PBS, Comedy Central) while starting to write her own screenplays. Her first feature screenplay received a rewriting grant from the French Centre National de la Cinématographie and was further developed at the screenwriting residencies Atelier Grand Nord (Canada, 2016) and Méditalents (France, Morocco, 2016). The screenplay was also shortlisted at the Rawi Screenwriters’ Lab (Jordan, 2016) and Cinephilia Inspire Residency (New York, 2017). She is currently developing a documentary project (Pitch d’Addoc 2021) and showcased a video installation as part of a contemporary art exhibition at La Maison des Arts, from June to November 2021, in Malakoff, France.
