BERKELEY, CA -- The Muslim Film Festival announces the first Bay Area Muslim Film Festival to be held on March 13, 2004 at UC Berkeley and Santa Clara University (date to be confirmed). The Muslim Film Festival (MFF) is an annual event that screens films by or about Muslims.


The world has become increasingly interested in understanding the diverse Muslim culture and society. The MFF seeks to help portray Muslim artists and their view, providing Muslims with a venue to share their work about themselves and their diverse traditions.


MFF Director, Juveria Aleem, says that this event is history in the making. "This is a significant milestone in the history of Muslim media arts," Aleem says. "We will be featuring great films which capture a mosaic of Muslim issues and perspectives."


Muslim Film Festival will offer an audience award and hold a filmmakers social hour network gathering at the festival. MFF hopes to enhance the film industry by providing a focused event for films about and by Muslims.


The festival will screen such films as "On Common Grounds," "'T' for Terrorist," "Haters," "Born in the USA" and international entries such as a music video from Denmark featuring the group 'Outlandish' and "Oil Children," a feature film from Iran. The festival will highlight the talent of Muslim filmmakers from around the world, showcasing the creativity and richness of Muslim culture. The festival is the first of its kind in the Bay Area and looks forward to expanding to Los Angeles, Texas and New York.
