Today is one and only amazing writer, actress, producer of Americanish’e Aizzah Fatima’s legendary birthday. Aizzah makes us laugh. Aizzah continuously tours all around the world with her one woman show “Dirty P**i Lingerie” enabling the rest of to see her and her extended community’s complexities and richness. Aizzah Fatima is one of the pioneers of American-Muslim untold stories and she has some incredible things lined up ahead! The images you see are from our SCAD Savannah Film Festival premiere of #Americanishfilm, Aizzah’s panel about diversity in showbiz; an image of her glorious best actress acceptance speech from Tasveer, and A in her element at Florida Film Fest. Continue to shine as you always do. Happy Birthday AIZZAH FATIMA.

📣 Over the weekend #Americanishfilm won three awards at two festivals! We are honored.

Caption repost from Americanish - We share this Americanish news with excitement, but also sensitivity to what’s happening globally—not just in Ukraine, but also in countries where Black and brown people continue to face violence and oppression.

We are also reminded of the importance of sharing the stories about and by people of color. Thank you to Amelia Island Film Festival and Sedona International Film Festival for recognizing our story!

This past weekend, we received the Grand Jury Prize and Best Narrative at Amelia Island Film Festival, plus Best Comedy at Sedona Film Festival!

Thank you to the festival organizers and our supporters!

🎬 Americanish

In Jackson Heights, Queens, career-driven sisters Maryam and Sam and their newly-immigrated cousin Ameera must navigate the consistent and sometimes conflicting demands of romance, culture, work, and family. Serving both as a lighthearted reimagination of and critical divergence from the classic romantic comedy, AMERICANISH tackles and celebrates the complex intersectionalities of womanhood by welcoming us into the world—with all its joys and tribulations—of these three marriage-aged women.

Our latest film #AmericanishFilm’s Director Iman Zawahry wins BEST FEATURE DIRECTOR AWARD at LA Femme Film Festival
#FutureisFemale #FemaleFilmmaker

repost @imanzawahry:
I never thought I would ever win a Best Director Award! And it’s even more special coming from #LAFemmeFilmFestival. I worked so hard on this film over the last 8 years, particularly during the edit. I found out about the award while filming in Canada, so it was fitting that our amazing editor @its_jes__ accepted the award for me. It’s just as much hers as it is mine, as she never wavered over the last 3 years of the film. Special thanks to award-winning female @MissEricaEng for catching the 2nd and 3rd videos at the award ceremony. The last video is my reaction while filming with the female lead team in Canada. We all screamed for like 5 minutes, which was such a special moment to share with fellow female filmmakers who support and uplift each other. Thank you, LA Femme! Thank you, @AmericanishFilm team! Thank you to everyone who has supported me along this journey. #StudioAutonomous
