Hoda Elatawi on Film and Tv Production

Hoda Elatawi has been producing award-winning films and television in Canada and internationally for over two decades with GAPC Entertainment. Hoda's passion for history, social issues, education, and the arts has united her with like-minded producers and writers from around the world and allowed her to work on a diverse range of television projects.

Hoda has created and produced award-winning concepts in the children's and factual programming genres. She has collaborated with and produced for most Canadian broadcasters, with work that is also showcased internationally. From doc series to biopics, from specials to unscripted dramas, she brings a depth and unique perspective to all that she produces, working with teams across the country and around the world.

Recently, Hoda has completed production of a new award-winning children's television series, The Prime Radicals, for TVOkids and is currently in post-production for Season 2, along with a social issue doc for the Documentary Channel-this latter will be her directorial debut.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
