Calling all cinephiles! The first edition of the Muslim International Film Festival (MIFF) is happening this May in London!

The festival will take place from Thursday, May 30 to Sunday, Jun. 2.

The first-ever Muslim film festival will help filmmakers and other creatives from Muslim backgrounds reclaim Muslim artistic identity at a time when Muslims are still misrepresented in the media.
