Official Selection at 2 Festivals in Florida

We are excited to announce that Between Allah & Me has been officially selected by two great film festivals in Florida.



Between Allah & Me nominated for Golden Sheaf Award!

Between Allah & Me (and Everyone Else), a documentary film directed by Kyoko Yokoma, has been nominated for a prestigious Golden Sheaf Award in the multicultural category at Yorkton Film Festival, the longest running film festival in North America.

The festival will be held from Mary 21 to 25.

Press Kit and Poster are available for free downloads. Go check PRESS.



Official Endorsement from NCCM

We received an official endorsement from National Council of Canadian Muslim Women (NCCM)!

“Between Allah and Me (and Everyone Else) shares the experiences of four diverse Canadian Muslim women and their varied relationships with the Islamic headscarf (hijab). Filmmaker Kyoko Yokoma effortlessly provides a cinematic platform for these outspoken individuals to share their viewpoints with honesty, candour, and humour. The film offers audiences of all faiths and backgrounds a rare opportunity to learn more about a religious observance that has been politicized, romanticized, condemned and embraced around the world. A welcome addition to the slowly emerging narratives of Canadian Muslim women!”
