The Islamic Scholarship Fund is leading the movement in centering Muslim narratives in film. Film is a powerful tool that reflects authentic and nuanced experiences. By supporting and uplifting the voices of Muslim filmmakers ISF is challenging societal norms and demanding, equity and inclusion.
We provide a comprehensive cycle of support for filmmakers, from development to production, including our new artist support programs and fellowship!
Since our inception, ISF has supported 96 American Muslim filmmakers, who have produced 200 influential films watched by millions of viewers. The films and filmmakers have won Emmy awards, are Oscar-nominated, Sundance fellows and SXSW winners, directors of multiple network television shows, and much more. ISF is committed to continuing the legacy of Muslim storytellers.
