I had an opportunity today to watch a few short films made by high school students from across Toronto & the GTA.  I was invited to be one of the judges and I thoroughly enjoyed my time. Thanks to MIST Toronto for such a rewarding experience. I hope at least some of the participants will continue filmmaking and find the feedback from me and other judges useful.

To all the women who are fighting the exhausting battle against systemic barriers;  who are spending endless hours of unpaid labour in building equitable communities; Thank you. We live in a better world because of you and I pledge to carry your work forward. 
And in the spirit of this day, I will repost this photo. It was taken right after the premiere of my film , '3 Seconds Divorce' in Mumbai. It features Muslim women activists who are working for change on ground level ; and  many of them are featured in the film. After the screening they were all very excited on having seen their struggle represented from their perspective on screen. I think this will be my favorite image of sisterhood and allyship for a long time to come.

Thank you @reelworld for sending over the label with film's name & award category for my trophy! Now I can finally flaunt it! :) When I won the award for the film it had been freshly voted for and the label had to be ordered. Well it arrived yesterday along with a thoughtful note from the festival team!  I am so thrilled! 
Once again a big thanks to everyone who participated in the film in any capacity. Filmmaking is a team effort and I am grateful to mine. 
There are many community engagement screenings coming up & we will keep the conversation going.  At times these conversations are tough but we cannot remain silent on issues that effect women and families. The award and the love from the audience gives us all the support we need.

' 3 Seconds Divorce' in UK! 
Really excited to be touring with my film to UK. Birmingham offers a ripe and unique context for discussion around the themes of the film including instant- oral divorce or triple-talaq given by men, sharia & family laws, Muslim women's rights and activism. This will be a lively, thought-provoking discussion! Thanks to @thatnikkibi @impacthubbrum for hosting! 
If you have friends or colleagues in the area, please help us spread the word! You can also reach out if you want to host a screening!

Nominated and made it to finalist for 3 awards for my docu short, 'Namrata' produced by @onf_nfb : Best film non-fiction short, Best Screenplay non-fiction short, Best Production Reflecting Cultural Diversity. Fun times and celebrations with my shero @nam_gill whose story I tell in the film!

Just filling in the frame to let my DOP light it up. In these small crew situations I often do this before we call the interviewee to take the spot. 
Yes, I am shooting again!

Riding into the New Year like! :) That's me behind my favt. girl Lubna. Those of you who have seen my documentary, '3 Seconds Divorce' would know what an inspiring, genuine and brave woman she is. We had some great time bonding while making this film and I am beggining to miss it all. Lots of love to you Lubna. Your journey isn't easy and I admire how you keep moving on with grace. I am so glad our paths crossed. And everytime I screen the film, I see audience(s) get equally moved by your story. May our struggles be easier this year. May we see an end to opressive patriarchal practices like instant, oral divorce and halala in our communities. 
Happy New Year!
