Aida Begić is a Bosnian Muslimah, and director of the film Snijeg or 'Snow' which opened up the 14th Sarajevo Film Festival (SFF) in August 2008. It won the 2008 Cannes Critics’ Week Grand Prize, as well as being screened at film festivals around the world. You can read a Q&A with Aida about her film here.
Aida graduated from the Sarajevo Academy of Performing Arts in 2000 where she now teaches directing. In 2003 she founded an independent production company Mamafilm together with Elma Tataragić and Snow is their first feature film.
On a separate note, I totally adore Aida's pretty hijab style! Any other budding Muslimah film directors out there?
