"Great works went undiscovered"


Choukri Ben Meriem launched The Mavericks of Cinema, focused on helping filmmakers and screenwriters discover their producers. Choukri began his career as an actor and filmmaker in Paris. (Alike, directed in 2016 in Canada).
His work interests brought him to Australia and London where he was consistently aware of the challenge filmmakers faced in finding audience and distribution for their hard work. Great works went undiscovered. He first created a film directory platform for independent filmmakers, then helped to connect filmmakers, screenwriters and actors with potential producers or studios. This was the beginning of The Mavericks of Cinema.
