Amirah Tajdin

Film Director & Artist

Amirah Tajdin, is a Kenyan Film director and artist whose passion for filmmaking culminated in her pursuing a BA in Fine Art (Photography and Art History) in South Africa and the USA. Her work is lauded for its nuance, clear directorial voice and her lyrical stories of women and underrepresented subjects. Not to mention it takes risks when it comes to performance, casting, art direction and styling. Visually it’s rich, bold, new and speaks to the colorful world Amirah descends from, quite literally. Tajdin’s prolific career in commercials, fashion films, documentary and narrative projects includes work for brands such as SPANX, Farfetch, Cadillac, Bloomingdale’s, M.A.C, Virgin Mobile, Pepsi, Maybelline and The Louvre Abu Dhabi. Her brand film Sisterhood: Action for Girls Who Code was a Tribeca X Award finalist and garnered a Best Director nomination. This also translates well into her commercial directing portfolio that has garnered her representation in London, Paris, New York and Dubai.
