Mahfoud Mokaddem is a very passionate and multilingual actor, teacher and theater maker from The Netherlands and Morocco.
At a young age Mahfoud started taking theater lessons at the Youth Theater School in Dordrecht, the Netherlands, where he discovered his passion for theater and acting in 2008. In 2014 Mahfoud received a nomination by the Youth Theater School for the "Wil Stevens Scholarship” for theater and dance which he eventually won. Later that year Mahfoud decided to audition for the Academy for Theater in Tilburg, The Netherlands, where he graduated in 2018. During his studies, Mahfoud was featured in theatre show PAPAPA, directed and made by Alida Dors and Tjon Rockon (Productiehuis Rotterdam) and starred in the six-part performance THE NATION by Het Nationale Theater in The Hague, directed by Eric de Vroedt. After his studies, Mahfoud returned to the stage with Het Nationale Theater during the Dutch Theater Festival.
Shortly after, Mahfoud starred in TV series like Mocro Maffia and Flikken Rotterdam. Eventually he got to play the second biggest part in the Dutch feature film ‘De Belofte Van Pisa’., directed by Norbert ter Hall. This film received many Golden Calf nominations during the prestigious Dutch Film Festival 2020, such as Best Feature Film en Best Music. During the shooting period of this feature film, Mahfoud got followed by documentary makers Isaura Sanwirtajmo and Polina Medvedeva. Last weekend their documentary #VerlorenJongensZullenWinnen premiered on the Dutch Film Festival after it was pre-nominated for a Gouden Kalf Best Interactive. If you haven’t seen Mahfoud on screen or on stage yet, soon you will!
