Rawan Aldamen

I am a freelance filmmaker with fifteen years of practical experience in documentaries, TV programs and digital storytelling. Holds an MA (with Distinction) in Communications Studies from Leeds University, UK. I did as a one-woman-show researched, produced, edited and directed more than 30 hours of TV documentaries, translated to multiple languages. I worked as a senior commissioning producer at Al Jazeera Media Network for ten years supervising over 250 documentaries (2006 – 2016). I founded and led teams on multiple digital interactive platforms, notably the internationally award-winning project: Palestine Remix. Recently, I received the Media Creativity Award by the Arab Thought Foundation in Beirut, Lebanon (Dec 2015).
