As a child, Fady’s fascination with his father’s camera ignited his passion for taking pictures. Many years later, he used it to capture the 2003 invasion of his hometown of Baghdad.
Despite car bombs and death threats, Fady managed to develop a career in filmmaking in Iraq, holding key positions in producing, cinematography and sound design on several award-winning projects, all while earning his engineering degree at the University of Baghdad. He has spoken about these challenging experiences to global media outlets such as the Los Angeles Times, The Times of London, The Guardian, Le Monde, BBC, CNN, ABC and NPR.
Fady left Iraq in 2007, when he was awarded a prestigious scholarship to study at the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts in Los Angeles. He earned an MFA degree in Film and Television Production focusing on cinematography and documentary filmmaking.
Fady’s work has played at festivals around the world and broadcast on major television networks, like the National Geographic Channel and the Sundance Channel. He is an alumnus of the Berlinale Talent Campus, was a candidate for an ASC Heritage Award, and has won the Premio Rossellini award and three Webby Film and Video Awards.
