Unity Productions Foundation
UPF Films and Educational Projects Promote Peace and Understanding Through Stories of Muslim Engagement, History and Culture
Mission: Peace and Pluralism
The mission of Unity Productions Foundation (UPF) is to counter bigotry and create peace through the media. UPF produces films that tell compelling stories for television, online viewing, and theatrical release. These films are part of long-term educational campaigns aimed at increasing religious and cultural pluralism, especially among Muslims and other faiths.
Screenings have taken place in thousands of classrooms and civic institutions. Over 83% of participants in UPF film screenings and dialogues indicate positive feedback after viewing.
Finally, UPF works in Hollywood through its MOST (Muslims on Screen and Television) Resource Center, providing facts and research to script writers and producers on popular shows seen worldwide. We are convinced of the power of media to empower citizens with greater understanding and to nourish pluralism in America and around the world.
