Djawid Hakimyar

In the summer of 2003 Djawid accidentally went to a job interview for an internship at a commercial production company in Hamburg. Just 60 minutes later he had to put on an ice bear costume for a scene at a commercial shooting. That was the day he fell in love with the film industry. After several years of working as a fire extinguisher at a commercial production company, he decided to change the direction to become an arsonist. In 2009 he started studying at the Filmacademy Baden-Württemberg. Calling attention to himself with his first projects already, he ended up winning the „Young Directors Award“ in Cannes 2015, the „Deutscher Werbefilmpreis“ and a few other Awards for his work. He loves to tell Stories with great characters in a humorous way. His eye for production design is magnificent, his timing and feel for dramaturgy on point & his hobbys also include painting with watercolors & spinning vinyl.
Djawid lives in Hamburg.
