Kamil Chima

Kamil Chima is a producer, writer and director. He graduated from Harvard College in 2015. Born and raised in Pakistan, but shaped in college in the US, Kamil is at home in both worlds. Through his filmography he aspires to bring his two worlds closer together and hopes to be a champion of the shared humanity that binds us all together.

He is best known for his debut feature film Laal Kabootar (2019), which he co-wrote and produced. The film was Pakistan's Official Selection for the Academy Awards 2020 and played at Palm Springs International Film Festival. Kamil created a series pitch Pinky that was optioned by Warner Bros. in 2020 and his next short film Eid Mubarak is slated for a festival release in 2023. Kamil is currently producing a feature Me, My Mom and Sharmila (a Canadian co-production with Nehr Ghar Films) that is currently in production.
