Leila Basma

Leila is a filmmaker from Tyre, Lebanon. She holds a BA in Audiovisual Arts from IESAV at the Saint-Joseph University in Beirut, and she’s currently based in Prague pursuing an MFA in Film Directing at FAMU.

Her latest short documentary, The Adam Basma Project, was short-listed for the 48th annual Student Academy Awards (the Student Oscars) after having its premiere at the 18th DocLisboa International Film Festival in Lisbon.
Alongside filmmaking, Leila's photographs have been exhibited in various Art galleries and photo exhibitions in Beirut and Europe.
