Iman Zawahry the mastermind behind #Americanishfilm wins RiverRun International Film Festival 2022 SPARK AWARD. Congrats to this American-Muslim woman who continues to spark up the entire industry by creating a path for young filmmakers and changing the world one laugh at a time. Repost by Iman, below.
Winston-Salem, y’all! RiverRun International Film Festival was such an awesome experience, even as the only Americanish representative! The festival organizers and Raleigh residents have created a true arts community that supports and uplifts filmmakers. The screen is also the largest seamless projection screen on the East Coast!
Plus, the @UNCSA campus is ridiculous. It has a whole back lot! I got to see their projection room and archives, and they gave me reels to take home. This film nerd was crazy over-the-moon.
Before the screening Rob Davis, the awesome executive director, of @RiverRunFilm, awarded me with the Spark Award, which is a specialized glass-blown inner tube that represents excellence in filmmaking and honors all the filmmakers who came before me at this festival.

(sign up link: https://bit.ly/3en1aSB)
DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:
Neuroscientist Dr. Daniela Schiller, who leads the Affective #Neuroscience Lab at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, has spent years exploring “reconsolidation” — the biological process of rewriting painful #memories. Her groundbreaking work is shaped by her personal experiences with her elderly #father, who remains #haunted by the #Holocaust decades after he survived it.
#Filmmaker Liron Unreich of The Ripple Project has spent years exploring #multigenerational #trauma through a #differentlens. Like Schiller, his work is a personal mission informed by his own grandfather’s #legacy as a #holocaustsurvivor . The two of them have joined forces with producer, founder Roy Wol of Studio autonomous to create the upcoming feature-length #documentary The Ripple Project ONE, which profiles five #creative individuals working through the enduring #trauma of the Holocaust.
Join Schiller, Unreich, and Wol for a discussion exploring Schiller’s personal story, the journeys behind the film, and the dynamic nature of #traumatic emotional #memories.
Program attendees will also receive a private screening link to view a 22-minute film vignette of Daniela’s story.
Thanks to Brooklyn Arts Council for their continuous support.
