Refugee Voices in the Film Industry Panel Discussion

Moderated by Ragnhild Ek, the Refugee Voices in the Film Industry panel explored innovative and creative approaches to filming humanitarian crises wherever they occur and looked at how to shift the focus to refugees and migrants as likely audiences of films rather than merely as their subjects.

Panelists included Thuraya Ismail (Executive Director, Mentor Arabia), Saba Mubarak (Actress/Producer), Qays Sheikh Najib (Actor), Amin Dora (Director), Shaden Khallaf (UNHCR Senior Policy Advisor), Daniela Cicchella (UNHCR Senior Manager) and Amr Salama (Director/Screenwriter).
