Khadifa is an award-winning Director. She trained at the iconic London Studio Centre in all aspects of dance. After 10 years as a Dancer she moved to New York to further study acting.
On her return to London, frustrated by the lack of opportunities for actresses of colour, Khadifa wrote, produced and acted in a web series based on her New York experiences. It was then that Khadifa realised her true passion lay behind the camera and Rollacosta Productions was formed to help increase diversity on both sides of the camera. After producing and filming some improvised web series and directing fitness videos, Khadifa returned to NYC to write and co-produce The Woman Who Knocked On My Door (Best Indie Short, LA Film Awards) with Finelight Films.
