What can we do about issues like this?
What are some positive aspects of Islam to counter this?
What does a normal Muslim look like and examples of amazing Muslims?

Why MAX Film for Change?
Commitment to positive social change is a huge part of Islam.
Furthermore, at MAX we believe it is important that Muslim Canadians think critically about a range of social issues and take a leadership role to becoming a force of positive change.
We hope that through this competition, we are able to create nuanced dialogue on complex topics, encourage competitors to examine and critique social issues, and shed light on these issues from a range of fresh perspectives.
Many societal issues often intersect in complex ways on the basis of culture, ethnicity, socioeconomics, race, gender, and more.
Drawing attention to these and generating critical but respectful conversation is the first step to making a difference.
We look forward to seeing your submissions and good luck!
Create a short video that can be no more than 2 minutes in length.
You must submit your completed video via YouTube.com and complete the submission form by the contest deadline.
