Sharine Atif is an American Egyptian independent filmmaker. A graduate from CalArts in 2017 with an MFA in Film Directing.
As an independent filmmaker, Sharine experiments with different strategies and devices to learn how best to create change through cinema, by using confrontation, humor, subtlety, tenderness and/ or aggression, by highlighting the empowered woman.
Her short docu-drama ‘His Cucumber’ 2015, recaptures the story of a woman who confronts her harasser while at the market. The film was screened at the UN Commission on the Status of Women in New York City 2017.
Her most recent work is a short fiction film ‘Jebel Banat’ 2018, the retelling of a melancholic 19th century Egyptian legend about two Bedouin sisters escaping forced marriages. The film won the Student Visionary Award at Tribeca Film Festival 2019.
