Mo Ali, Film Director

Mo started out as a award winning music video director, working with some of the most innovative artists in the UK’s urban music scene, including Skepta, Tinchy Stryder, Chipmunk and Lethal B. His feature debut, the post-apocalyptic action-thriller “Shank”, was released theatrically in 2010, entering the UK Charts at number 4 and has now been released in more than 15 territories around the world. His second feature, “Montana” (2014), was a searing look at life in the underbelly of London. After appearing at the Sitges Film Festival, the most prestigious genre festival in the world, it sold to 30 territories and it went on to be nominated for Best Independent Feature at the NFAs and both Best Picture and Best Director at the Screen National Awards. Mo is currently in development on a wide range of feature films and television series. Mo is also a board member of British Urban Film Festival, patron of the East Side Educational Trues and mentors over 20 young London based filmmakers.
