With roots in graphic design, illustration and art-direction, Slim started his advertising career working in ad agencies both locally and abroad.
His awards as an art-director include achieving bronze and a year later silver in the Cannes Young Creative competition, local Loerie Grand Prix, CLIO, Silver Cannes Lion and TV Grand Prix at Portoroz (Festival of New Europe).
Within his first year of directing, Slim achieved first and third place in the prestigious Cfp-Shots Young Director’s Award at Cannes.
Slim has been directing commercials for 15 years, focusing on capturing evocative, character-driven stories across a diverse range of genres - whether absurd comedy or poignant empathy. Coming from an agency background, the concept is always key to his filmmaking.
Locally, Slim works with the good people at Darling Films. He also makes art in his insomniac hours.
