'The Representation of Muslims On Screen Directly Feeds The Policies That Get Enacted..' - Riz Ahmed
We are beyond grateful to have partnered with @pillarsfund on our #OneOpen for @MsMarvelOfficial! 💫 Their work has been integral to bringing Muslim talent and authentic stories to the forefront. We're excited to highlight some of Pillars Fund's initiatives:
• Muslim Visibility Challenge: A challenge asking the film industry to commit to sunsetting terror tropes and securing a first-look deal or signing with at least one Muslim creator in the next 18 months as part of The Blueprint for Muslim Inclusion
• Missing & Maligned: The Reality of Muslims in Popular Global Movies: A landmark study on Muslim representation across 200 top movies from the U.S., U.K., Australia, and New Zealand between 2017 and 2019
• Pillars Muslim Artists Database: A network for industry leaders and Muslim artists in the filmmaking and storytelling industries in the U.S.
• Pillars Artist Fellowship: A program empowering emerging Muslim artists with $25,000, mentorship from industry experts, and professional and creative development in their fields
