Miss J has completed post-production and has begun festival submissions! Check back here for updates.
After a wonderful couple years on the film festival circuit, you can now watch The Silent Gangsters online. We are so proud of this film's success & are so happy to finally be able to share it with a wider public. We hope you enjoy it!
Filming took place in September & thanks to a wonderful, talented team went brilliantly!
'Miss J' is now close to being picture locked, discussions with final members of the post-production team are underway, & composer Aisling Brouwer (The Silent Gangsters, Best Original Score) is working her music magic to create the score.
More details soon.
It's official! The Kickstarter campaign for Miss Jihadi has launched! We need to raise £5000 by the 25th of August - we're doing super well but still have far to go.
This is an important film that we believe needs to be made, especially in light of the recent rise in hate crimes and the horrific recurring attacks on citizens.
If you'd like to support this campaign you can find the Kickstarter page here.
Any love and support - whether financial, word-of-mouth, or social media driven - will bring you our unending love and gratitude.
Maxine Ross of MDMX Films and Kristina Epenetos are producing Amani's upcoming short film Miss Jihadi.
With the script almost done, we're about to launch our crowdfunding campaign and start bringing the rest of the team together. Watch this space!
We are so super psyched over here at HeavyWait to be kicking off the new year with a screening of our short film The Silent Gangsters at the brilliant London Short Film Festival!

Here's to a great 2016!
A brilliant evening screening The Silent Gangsters at the BYT Film Club hosted by the May Fair Hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed Steven Loring's touching documentary on speed dating for the over-70s, The Age of Love.
Keep an eye out on the BYT website here for more glamorous events showing films you wouldn't otherwise see!
We are thrilled to have been Officially Selected by the BAFTA qualifying London Short Film Festival & will be screening in January 2016. Watch this space for screening details...
We're excited to be getting our first London screening as part of the BYT Film Club at the May Fair Hotel on 26th November where we will precede the main feature The Age of Love by Steven Loring.
