          Master Mechanic Films

Master Mechanic Films AB is founded and operated by filmmaker and producer, Hussain Currimbhoy.

Since its inception in 2020 in Helsingborg, Sweden, Master Mechanic Films has offered high quality film production services for a range of collaborators including major film funding institutions such as, the Chicago Media Project, Breakthrough Prize, Film i Skåne and Screen West.

We embrace short and feature length documentary and narrative films designed to reach an international audience with a spirit of independence at their core.

As Executive Director, Hussain draws on years of international experience seeing independent films connect with audiences. We are drawn to the stories concerning the diaspora, the conditions of exile, the fish-out-of-water experience, whether that story is told through non-fiction or narrative methods. Whether we are working with emerging artists and established scientists, the common thread is the desire to  share humanist ideals and vital stories that make us look differently at our world.

We offer full film production services for a range of budgets and work closely with our collaborators from concept to production design, from the shoot to delivery: all with the goal of optimizing the narrative you want to share.
