MPAC Hollywood Bureau
The MPAC Hollywood Bureau serves as a bridge between the Muslim community and the entertainment industry. Our goal is to increase the number of authentic and humanizing stories of Muslims and Islam on film and TV. We do this by engaging the industry and developing relationships with filmmakers, artists, and studio executives. The Bureau also works with American Muslims to nurture creative talent and connect emerging filmmakers, writers and actors with industry professionals.
MPAC experts provide information, background, and consultation that addresses cultural and religious sensitivities in such areas as civil rights, politics, foreign affairs, art, culture, history, law, family issues and more.
