Abdul Kassamali

Abdul Kassamali is an American-born, Kenyan-raised filmmaker based out of Seattle. Although he is trained as an electrical engineer, Kassamali has been working in film for over a decade, taking an opportunity during an industry-wide layoff in the middle of the 2020 pandemic to pursue filmmaking full-time. Since then, he has worked with clients such as REI, HOKA, The North Face, Brooks, Patagonia, Eddie Bauer, Facebook and Cut, among many others. He is an avid storyteller, focusing on work that reflects his own life experience as a first-generation child of Kenyan immigrants in America. Kassamali frequently works alongside other artists to help share their story with the world through film, and finds a lot of joy in this work. He is the director behind Won't Give Up (Mountainfilm 2024).
