About MPAC’s Hollywood Bureau
Fostering Relationships with Industry Professionals
Our staff meet regularly with executives, producers, directors, screenwriters and actors to develop mutually beneficial relationships, and share expertise and insight that can lead to financially and critically successful projects.
Consulting on Film & TV Projects
We work with studios and production companies on projects depicting Islam or Muslims, promote balanced and accurate portrayals of Muslim-related issues, and educate the filmmakers and producers about religious, political and cultural issues in the Muslim world.
Leveraging the Network
We create opportunities for Hollywood professionals to interact with creative talent with the goal of facilitating American Muslim involvement in Hollywood. We also provide opportunities for studios and filmmakers to screen their work before Muslim audiences and gather feedback.
