Anwar Boulifa is an award-winning filmmaker. He is currently developing his first feature film “The Unwanted”, which was selected for the 34th session of Cannes’ Cinéfondation Residency. Originally from a documentary background, Boulifa’s first short film A SHORT GUIDE TO RE-ENTRY mainly used a cast of non-professionals to create an unflinching depiction of the rehabilitation system for young offenders in the UK. It went on to win the Bill Douglas International Award and the Audience Award at the 2016 Glasgow Short Film Festival and also screened at international festivals. His second short film TEMPLAES made in conjunction with Film London is currently on the festival circuit. Boulifa was selected for the Talent Lab at Toronto in 2016.
