We loved having Fawzia Mirza as our guest speaker at our Launch Event and screening of her film, Signature Move! Thank you to all who came! “There’s a lot of opportunities for us to comment on current events and politics, and I think we should take them. We have these platforms and resources to make stuff. Use them.”
"Process is beautiful. Don't let anyone tell you who to be or who you are. It will come to you eventually." –Star and co-writer of @signaturemovemovie, Fawzia Mirza (@thefawz) ❤️ Mirza joins Fusion for a Q&A following our screening of Signature Move, which also marks the opening of submissions to our festival.

"So, while Signature Move works well on the merits of the romantic comedy genre, the film becomes exceptional within the context of our current social climate. It narratively transcends all of the ugliness, all of the hate, all of the negativity. Instead, this film shows us compassion, humor, and most importantly love." Come see signature move TONIGHT @6:15 cantor film center!
“It is actually a tender, quite traditional love story. Its radicalism relies on how it really isn't radical at all, breaking tiredly stereotypical ways of representing queerness and women of color.” -Marta Bauselles, Broadly Vice
Today's the day! 🎉 #signaturemove
"Signature Move’s strength lies in telling authentic stories by fostering a multitude of authentic Middle Eastern and Latina voices within its narrative and shines as a must-see within our current cultural and political climate" #onemoreday
"Signature Move is the indie-feminist-romantic-comedy that you didn’t know you needed, but much like Alma did for Zaynab, it will probably change your life. ... Signature Move is a breath of revolutionary fresh air.” -Avery W, alotonmymindblog.com
We are so excited for our launch event and screening of @signaturemovemovie this Thursday! RSVP on Facebook!
