Alaa Al-Eryani is passionate about using film as a platform to raise women’s voices and highlight gender inequality issues.
Alaa is originally from Yemen and currently lives in Canada. She studied Film Production at Toronto Film School. As an Ambassador and Advocate at Yemen Peace School, she is responsible for promoting peace advocacy online and creating short films for women’s rights. Through her work, she joined Banat Alyoum, a social enterprise which aims to empower and inspire girls. As an advocate, Alaa is proud to have created and collaborated on various campaigns and media initiatives highlighting girls’ and women’s stories online, particularly her original short film about domestic violence.
Alaa was inspired to become an advocate by her mother, because she believes in peace and justice and has always worked toward making a change in Yemen.
In her free time, Alaa enjoys volunteering, traveling, and photography.
