Rima Mismar

Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (Lebanon)

Executive Director

Born in Lebanon in 1975, Rima Mismar completed her studies in Communication Arts (Radio/TV/Film emphasis) at the Lebanese American University (LAU) in Beirut. Before graduating, she began writing for local newspapers and cultural supplements, focusing on cinema, before pursuing her professional career as a film critic from 1999 onward. During the last decade, she participated in several festivals as jury member or as a member of the selection committee, contributing to serious critical writings on Arab cinema, moderating panels and writing for several regional media. In addition to that, she had a sporadic involvement with television, writing and producing several episodes of “The Arabic Lens” (Al Adasa Al Arabiya), a series on Arab cinema produced and broadcasted by Al-Jazeera between 2005 and 2008, and writing and researching a number of feature documentaries, produced by and broadcasted on Al-Arabiya channel.

Rima joined the Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (AFAC) in June 2011 as the film programmes manager, becoming deputy director in 2015 and was appointed executive director in December 2016.
