Mohamed Saïd Ouma is a film director and screenwriter who has been responsible for production and a programming assistant for the International African Film Festival of Africa and the Islands (FIFAI) in the city of Port à l'Ile in Réunion Island since 2004. Before that he worked as a journalist in England for several years.[1] FIFAI is organized by Alain Gili and Mohamed Said Ouma. The festival honors productions that are often ignored on the African continent, and also honors works made in the islands.[2]
