Australia’s first Muslim film festival opens in Perth
Organisers of an Islamic film festival which opened this weekend say they aim to bring greater diversity to the Australian film industry.
“These aren’t things that we generally get to see in cinema in Australia, so we’re giving the opportunity for the community to come together and see something different.”
Six of the featured filmmakers are Australians, both Muslim and non-Muslim, and explore issues as diverse as culture, relationships, Islamophobia and racism.
