Ali Mostafa

Up Next: Middle Eastern Filmmakers

Emirati filmmaker Mostafa might prove to be the Gulf’s first director of international standing. While he has only just completed a series of well-received shorts and promos, Mostafa is prepping his feature debut, which will be produced by Tim Smythe’s U.A.E. based Filmworks. Pic will be the first English-language film to emanate from Dubai made by a local. Mostafa’s refusal to shoot on anything other than film stands him out from the current crowd of digital Emirati filmmakers.
