Shady El-Hamus

Biography

English

Dutch filmmaker Shady El-Hamus is interested in human beings, human stories and stories that appeal on a universal level. He enrolled at the Netherlands Film and Television Academy in 2008 to study screenwriting. There, besides writing a lot of short screenplays, he soon realizes he is longing for more and starts directing.

Shady graduates from the Netherlands Film Academy in 2012 as screenwriter/director. He writes "Magnesium" which is directed by Sam de Jong, and writes and directs "About sons". At the 2012 Netherlands Film Festival "Magnesium" was awarded Best Student Film and for both films, Shady has awarded the Dioraphte Award for most outstanding talent. "Magnesium" got selected for the 2013 edition of the Sundance Film Festival – as many other international film festivals, and was the Dutch entry for the 2013 Student Oscar.

From January 2015 Shady has graduated from the prestigious MA Directing Fiction Course at the National Film and Television School in Beaconsfield, United Kingdom. His graduation film "Fairuz" - starring acclaimed Palestinian actor Mohammad Bakri – premiered at the 2015 Dubai International Film Festival as part of the Main Competition.

In 2015 Shady has directed the first season (ten 25min episodes) of a light-hearted TV-Series in the Netherlands. His latest short film "Nightshade" (2017) has been selected at Oscar qualifying Encounters Festival, Clermont-Ferrand Int. Short Film Festival, Leeds Int. Film Festival, Busan Int. Short Film Festival. Shady is now developing his first feature film.

Italiano

Il regista olandese Shady El-Hamus è interessato agli esseri umani, alle storie umane e alle storie di richiamo universale. Si iscrive al Netherlands Film and Television Academy nel 2008 per studiare sceneggiatura. Lì, oltre a scrivere molte sceneggiature brevi, si rende presto conto di desiderare di più e inizia con la regia.

Shady si laurea alla Netherlands Film Academy nel 2012 come sceneggiatore/regista. Scrive "Magnesium" diretto da Sam de Jong, e scrive e dirige "About sons". Al Netherlands Film Festival del 2012 "Magnesium"  viene premiato come Miglior Film studentesco e per entrambi i film, a Shady viene assegnato il Dioraphte Award per l'eccezionale talento. "Magnesium" viene selezionato per l'edizione 2013 del Sundance Film Festival così come in molti altri festival cinematografici internazionali, ed è il corto che rappresenterà l'Olanda per l'Oscar Studenti del 2013. 

Da gennaio 2015 Shady si laurea presso il prestigioso MA Directing Fiction Course presso la National Film and Television School di Beaconsfield, nel Regno Unito. Il suo film di diploma "Fairuz" - con protagonista l'acclamato attore palestinese Mohammad Bakri - viene presentato in anteprima al Dubai International Film Festival 2015 come parte della competizione principale.

Nel 2015 Shady dirige la prima stagione (dieci episodi da 25 minuti) di una allegra serie televisiva nei Paesi Bassi. Il suo ultimo cortometraggio "Nightshade" (2017) viene selezionato nei Festival di qualificazione degli Oscar Encounters Festival, Clermont-Ferrand Int. Short Film Festival, Leeds Int. Film Festival, Busan Int. Short Film Festival. Shady sta sviluppando il suo primo lungometraggio.
