I am filmmaker with a long and diverse experience in media. I have worked as an editor, producer and a director for long and short formats, for both narratives and documentaries. My work was recognized and shown in film festivals around the world including New York Film Festival, Venice, Toronto, London, Leipzig, Dubai, Abu Dhabi; only to name a few.

I a looking for creative collaborators. A screenwriter with passion to make a short or a low budget feature. I love comedy, drama and thrillers and anything else that arouses the imagination. I have my own equipment and would like to find "the" script.
Sexual Harassment in Egypt
Film (short) by Tamer Ashry (Documentary) Producer We take a closer look at the causes and consequences of sexual harassment and try to understand the mindset of the harasser and what motivates them. Men often find it difficult to understand how the fear of sexual harassment impacts the daily lives of Egyptian women and so we undertake an exercise in empathy by sending a young man onto the street dressed as a women. His brief glimpse of Cairo's streets from a woman's perspective is revealing of the constant state of siege that millions of women experience every day. Written by Tamer Ashry
Film by Tamer Ezzat (Documentary) Director Months after Hosni Mubarak stepped down, Egyptians country-wide seem determined to maintain the insurgency until their demands are met. It is therefore too premature to expect filmmakers to imagine fictions that convey the unimaginable experience of the uprising. A different predicament hangs over documentary cinema, and Tahrir 2011 is a laudable attempt to steer away from reportage and reflect on what historians will index as the first chapter of the uprising. Structured in three chapters, the film playfully debunks misconceptions and stereotypes. Written by TIFF
