Khaled Sayed : just returned from Egypt
Khaled will show a trailer from his current project, about women's rights in the middle east during and after the Arab Spring, and discuss his experiences and some of the amazing people he met and worked with while filming in the middle of an ongoing revolution. He may also want to show a segment or two from his finished features, and discuss the film festival process.
Khaled Sayed is an award-winning documentary director, who worked as a lawyer in Egypt before he moved to the United States, where he studied Multimedia production at San Francisco State University, and began working as a film director and media consultant out of his office in San Francisco.
Khaled's first self-directed feature documentary, "Egypt: The Story Behind the Revolution," was released in 2011 and has won several awards at film festivals around the world. He has just released his second feature documentary, "Stories From Tahrir," which picks up where the first film left off, and shows the human complexities of the ongoing revolution in Egypt.

SF Cutters is the World's first Apple Final Cut Pro User Group forming in March of 2000. We have evolved to cover NLEs on the Mac, including but not limited to FCP, PremierePro, After Effects, Resolve, AVID, Lightworks, related plugins, VFX software and more. We also focus on the business, aesthetics, and life of the postproduction professional.
That's right, the concept of a DV User Group, complete with networking, screenings and tech info centered around Apple Final Cut Pro was born right here in San Francisco. Currently there are over 100 chapters of Creative Pro User Groups based upon our model. We are proud to be the founders of this exciting movement, dubbed in 1999 as "The DV Revolution". Viva!
SF Cutters meets regularly in San Francisco and the Bay Area Jan thru Nov, the schedule may vary from year to year.
