Film Shorts by Young Muslims
December 6 – December 18, 2018
young muslim film shorts

PBS posted 32 film shorts created by the Muslim Youth Voices Project (MYVP), an incubator for budding filmmakers. The resulting shorts speak to the various cultural and social avenues that young Muslims, especially Black and Brown ones, take while building their identity. They cover issues as varied as Islamophobic bullying, the refugee crises and health practices—all through the perspectives of people who don’t typically see themselves on screen.

PBS and WorldChannel.org partnered with The Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) to presents these stories that convey the richness and diversity of Muslim Americans.

Over the course of three summers, 44 youth from 6 cities were given the essential tools and taught script writing and video production by Muslim filmmakers and taught how to tell their own stories on their own terms. The workshops resulted in short films, amplifying these young people’s voices, and illuminating the many identities and experiences of youth and Muslim life in America.

See all of the films via PBS.org.
