Welcome to The Samar Project! If you’re a media fanatic and love everything about international film, entertainment, music and travel, then you’ve come to the right place.

The Samar Project is an international media/lifestyle website that covers all things film, music, lifestyle, art and much more … from around the world. Hollywood film/series reviews, news, features may be included but this site will focus more on international media. It’s time for foreign-language movies and series to shine.

Not only does TSP explores media topics but also interviews inspiring and talented bloggers and influencers that you love and would like to hear from.

It’s created to deliver information you want to know and read about, whether you’re waiting in line for your morning coffee, taking you’re lunch break, riding the train or doing anything else during the day.

Meet the Founder …

This site is founded in 2017 by me (Samar Khouri) an Australian Lebanese freelance journalist in Dubai. UAE.  I’m currently a K-pop columnist for ‘K-pop Corner’, a weekly column dedicated to K-pop, in Gulf News tabloid! newspaper.

I completed my Masters of Journalism degree at The University of Melbourne and holds an undergraduate degree in Communications Arts with an emphasis in Radio, TV and Film.

When I was young, I always knew that I wanted to write and one day work in the film industry. So one day I quite my PR job, and flew to Australia to pursue my dream.

I am also an Editor for a hair blog, Hairblogstylist, a hair blog based in Dubai.

I have written for Gulf News tabloid!CNNKhaleej Times, Ahlan! and The Citizen. Full list here.

Having lived in the metropolitan and multicultural Dubai – please don’t assume I’m rich – for almost 25 years, I love being exposed to diverse cultures, music and languages and watching international movies.

What better way to write about my love for all things media, music and travel-related than by creating a website after learning that most people aren’t being sufficiently introduced to international media. The Samar Project is solely dedicated to everything foreign and hopefully inspires at least one person to love media as much as I do.

Oh.. you can contact me here for any suggestions or anything you’d like to share. Always looking forward to hearing from anyone’s feedback.

I hope you enjoy this site as much as I do. So sit back, relax and read!

Happy Reading! xx
