Muslim Speed Dating is set in a local furniture store, graciously provided by an Indo-Canadian couple. It follows a group of Muslim men and women exploring speed dating for the first time. Juxtaposing age-old, traditional values with newly adopted methods of courtship, the film examines and reveals the inherent clash between ancient mating rituals and the expectations of modern dating. Can the burqa-clad East adhere to the confines of Western speed dating? Find out after Maghrib sunset prayers.

My journey for making this film started with just that I used my own life for the material In particular, it is inspired very much by my late father; hilarious, a master storyteller and man who loved to laugh. I also introduced into the script issues valid and about the subject of being Identified as a Muslim and being Gay, being Canadian, being a Refugee, being born in Canada, being Rich and being Poor.

With my comedy, I wanted to move away from the heaviness with which Muslim content and all Islam is often associated, particularly by the West. I wanted to open a window into my culture, my religion and our lives, hopes, fears, and dreams and show that we are different but the same, not all one culture but many. After a thousand steps on this journey, I am so happy to say I've introduced a new way of thinking, a fresh way of looking at a subject that has had a one-sided view for far too long.

With comedy no matter what our races, religions, beliefs, or how our lives may differ, we all of us find some things universally funny and this appeals to all audiences. I hope the audience enjoys this film, as much as I enjoyed creating it. Add Poster Image. Mobina Khan. Mobina Khan and Matthew Odette.
