Osama Alkhurayji is the Executive Director of ROAA Media Ventures, a visionary holding company at the forefront of Saudi Arabia’s rapidly evolving media and entertainment industry.
He is also an award-winning director, producer, and CEO of Hakawati Entertainment. He began directing and producing films in 2007, and despite the lack of market demand in Saudi Arabia at the time, his works have been awarded both locally and internationally.
Osama later earned a Master’s degree in filmmaking from New York Film Academy in Burbank, California, where he got his Hollywood experience in cinema and TV. Since then, he’s produced content with several regional TV networks, theaters, distributors, and streaming platforms such as SBC, Shahid, MBC, Vox Cinemas and OSN.
Osama is also an active figure in the content sector, having founded and co-founded several leading content and production companies, such as Integrated Production, Qutrob, and Hakawati Entertainment-one of the most prominent startups in visual content production and literary management in Saudi Arabia.
In 2022, Osama created an alliance with Hakawati Entertainment to push boundaries in the types of content created by connecting Hollywood talents and Saudi creatives to foster healthy and competitive opportunities in the film industry.
