Huriyyah Muhammad is an avid writer, director and producer whose passion lies at the intersection of telling great stories and helping others do the same. As an independent film producer, she has led the production of multiple feature films from development to market, and recently completed projects in Kenya and India. More recently, her supernatural web-series, KELOID, was met with rave reviews and continues to win awards. Huriyyah is now in the development phase, producing the narrative feature film FAREWELL AMOR, which was recently awarded the competitive Jerome Foundation Grant.
As busy as Huriyyah is as an artist, she is also driven by a desire to increase the number of under-represented voices in TV & film. Toward this end, she founded the Black TV & Film Collective, a 501c3 arts organization currently with over 1200 members. Under her leadership, the organization focuses on three key areas: professional development, relationship building and production support for artists seeking to produce work. Through the organization, Huriyyah is able to find emerging talent and become a force in championing their development and work.
Huriyyah holds an MBA from the NYU Stern School of Business and a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Computer Science from Spelman College.
