Abdou Cisse

Abdou Cissé is an award-winning writer-director & creative from South London.

In 2019, his directorial debut Serious Tingz won best narrative short at the Shiny Awards and was nominated for BIFA, becoming an Bafta & Oscar-qualifying film. The film went on to be selected by 8 festivals, featuring on ITV news, Tate Modern & Britain. As well as National Prison Radio reaching over 90,000 prisoners across the UK.

From having a successful career creating award winning campaigns for brands such as Apple, Nike, and Google, Abdou aims to widen the spectrum and genre of inner city stories told in the UK. By creating projects that spark dialogue around/challenge social and cultural stereotypes.

His latest project, A Festival of Slaps, has been financed by BBC Film and will be released later this year.
