Shajna Begum (Shaz) Founder & Director

After graduating in Media Studies and completing a one-year filmmaking programme, Shaz went on to become a freelance film editor. Being hard-of-hearing, she relies on captions and noticed the lack of it at short film screenings, so she set up The Film Bunch to bring everyone together, whether they need captions or not.

Shaz is a fan of making tribute videos - if you want one, you'll have to get on her good side! When she's not editing or planning events for you guys, she's doodling, taking photos of abandoned things or rewatching It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Find her online
