Fiche Personne

Hanan Kattan

Producteur/trice, Producteur/trice délégué/e, Distributeur/trice




Hanan has a unique talent for combining a deep passion for her projects with the ability to thrive in a highly competitive environment. She gets things done, and she always gets others as excited about her ideas as she is – qualities which make her a success in her role as a film producer.

Hanan created Enlightenment Productions in partnership with Shamim Sarif solidifying the intense creative partnership between the two. The company is dedicated to producing entertaining features that have integrity and individuality.

Enlightenment Production’s and Shamim Sarif’s directorial debut I Can’t Think Straight marks Hanan’s debut as a film producer. She successfully shepherded the project through the script stage and into financing before attaching a talented cast and crew and running the project through production. She equally succeeded with Shamim’s second feature film The World Unseen that has won several international movie awards including Best Debut Feature at the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival, Best Director Feature & Woman’s Favourite Awards at Clip Film Festival, Florida, Audience Award, Best Feature at Miami G&L Film Festival and the World Cinema Best Director Award at the Phoenix Film Festival.

Enlightenment’s current projects include two other works by Shamim. The Reader, a period drama about a young American boy at Oxford and the relationship he forms with a blind Englishwoman, is being structured as a British production. Despite The Falling Snow is a sweeping tale of passion and betrayal in Cold War Russia.

Hanan’s background includes building a successful distribution cosmetic company and creating an entirely new product category – that of holistic premium mass-market products. Marie Claire magazine has labelled her method of work « beauty with a conscience ».
