Kayf Abdulqadir, a young filmmaker from Canada, has been commended for the PLURAL+ Insight Award 2014 for her film ’3 Things You Should Know About My Hijab’

This whirlwind of a film made by 23-year-old Kayf Abdulqadir only lasts just over 90 seconds, but it captures serious points about the wearing of a hijab in a fun and funky way for young people everywhere.

’3 Things You Should Know About My Hijab’ showcases three common misconceptions behind the practice of Muslim women covering their heads.

The film brilliantly succeeds in making Kayf’s frustrations with stereotypes of how the hijab is perceived into an inclusive celebration of the joy of being young and confident.

’3 Things You Should Know About My Hijab’ impressed the judges of the PLURAL+ Insight Award 2014 so much that Kayf has been commended for her film.
