Monira Kamal

PROFESSIONAL ANIMATOR & FILMMAKER

Films are my passion, for as long as I can think. And I love to help others with bringing their ideas to life and making them visible. No matter if it's about creating a recording of a memorable event or promoting heart projects: My aim in this process is to find a projects very own details and highlight it's special features to create inspiring films that will long be remembered.

I graduated in Animation (Dipl.-Anim.) at Film University Babelsberg in 2014. Eversince I'm working freelance, contributing to various film productions in the fields of animation, videography and film design. This wide range of abilities enable me to offer my clients services in a broader context, such as corporate and explanatory film, music video, feature and short film, theater and event film, 360°, games and further.

A personal concern of mine is supporting the German animation film industry. Since 2017 I'm engaged in organizing the "Festival of Animation Berlin" as an active partner with my knowledge and media capabilities in the areas of marketing and social media. My own animated short films are shown and awarded on film festivals around the globe.
