"...another short gem of a film, Abu Rami by Sabah Haider, a film very close to my heart." — E. Nina Rothe

"Filmmaker Sabah Haider is a talent to watch. While Abu Rami is a short film ... it packs a punch beyond the filmmaker’s young age and way beyond its duration. Abu Rami explains the importance of children in the Arab world, the heft of being someone’s father, but also the force of character of women throughout the Middle East."

"Female directors in the Arab world have been closing the gender divide with groundbreaking films that have dominated international and local festivals ... Haider's love affair with Lebanon is obvious through her short films. Abu Rami is a beautifully shot drama about a frustrated older married couple."

Hefzy said: "I am a strong believer in supporting new Arab talents that can pump new and fresh ideas into the Arab cinema scene. Such support can only come from film producers, and this is why Film Clinic gave away this award. Beirut Solo is an excellent production that truly deserves to see the light, and I am proud to be part of the team that helped do that."
