About Nabil Badine
Director Nabil Badine moved with his family from Lebanon to Canada when he was still a young boy and, having grown up with North American television, he had a fascination with entertainment.
After graduating high school, Nabil started his dramatic training at George Brown College. During that time he decided to take a chance on auditions and see if he could use his training for real world experience.
He then joined Landed Entertainments and discovered he was more interested in life behind the camera. He began building his experience with production management but soon realized his true passion for directing.
In June 2013, Nabil successfully directed his first narrative project, the short film Let’s Rap and followed that up with a crack at TV, directing the TV pilot Americanistan. Nabil is currently active in the Toronto film and television scene and directed three shorts in 2018 one of which is Off By Heart.
