As Muslim themes and characters appear more often in television and film, writers and producers face a complex challenge: presenting multidimensional characters and stories that transcend stereotypes. MOST invites you to use our resources freely.
Our goals are to:
- Provide the Hollywood creative community with resources and information on Muslims in America and around the world.
- Engage thought leaders and the entertainment community in an on-going dialogue about the United States and the Muslim world.
MOST has two key components:
- A resource service — fast facts, polls, research, experts—about Islam and the Muslim world.
- Seminars and special events that bring key policymakers and opinion leaders together with writers, creative executives, agents, and actors to discuss issues related to the Muslim world.
