Georges Hazim

Born in Beirut, director Georges Hazim is a graduate of the Faculty of Fine Arts and Architecture in the Lebanese University, where he obtained his Master’s degree in Directing.

He clings to the power of cinema and sees it as the ultimate weapon needed to progress in order to reach someday the freedom to exist without fear. His award-winning short films include Above the Nest (2015), which won many awards, including the Best Director at the Euro Film Festival in Spain, Servants (2016), Bad Trip (2017), which won the Best National Film at the Batroun Mediterranean Film Festival, and Son of a Dancer (2018).
