Talal Afifi
Curator of Sudan Film Factory and President of Sudan Film Festival 
Yes, you read that right: Sudan, the Arab-speaking nation of North Africa is seeing the stirrings of a youthful cinema movement. Previously a human rights activist working in cultural management in Egypt and Sudan, Talal launched his festival in 2014 and also curates the Sudan Film Factory, a Khartoum training project of the Goethe-Institut Sudan.
