Mounia started her career in the entertainment industry in 2003 at ShoPro Entertainment (Japanese Animation) in San Francisco, USA, where she learned all the different sides of the licensing business from TV Sales to Merchandising Sales and DVD Sales.
When she came back to France she pursued her career in the animation industry working for multiple distributors like Viz Media Europe and Toei Animation, just to name a few.
Mounia has a Moroccan heritage. She was born in Casablanca (Morocco) and grew up in France. Mounia is fluent in French, English and Arabic. She has strong interpersonal skills which helped her build a strong network of trusted partners and clients over the years.
Mounia decided to start up a company to defend her belief: Africa is a continent that should matter. Mounia Aram Company’s desire is to bring the African animation stories, movies and series to the success they deserve in the international market. She wants to build more awareness around the continent and the 54 countries it is made of. Each country that has its own culture, stories, and specific characters that all kids can relate on.
Even though the public is demanding more diverse films, we are still lacking diversification of animated programming that would challenge children (and adults…) in understanding different people and cultures. Widen horizons and minds is here MAC’s core interest, while helping children growing with characters to look up to and connect and contributing to a more inclusive and fairer world.
Mounia Aram Company’s goal is to build a bridge between African content, culture and the international market, promoting thereby diversity within the industry. Africa is booming and Mounia Aram Company works toward becoming the reference actor of the continent in this industry through its network of reliable partners.
Mounia Aram Company envisions to open offices and animation schools in Africa to nurture local talents, while making sure the African continent, its culture and its specificities are respected and well showcased.
