Hassala Films (‘hassala’ means money box in Arabic) is an independent production house that was formed in 2010 by a group of independent artists who share the same ideas and thoughts about working in low budget forms to produce long debut projects (fiction and documentary) for talented young artists who seek for a challenge in what they want to say and take the maximum risk regarding their artistic tools. We set up Hassala Films to support young artists achieve their dream projects by offering them free information, cameras, edit suits, actors and extras, locations and efficient independent crew members who can work in deferment or low rate of salaries.
