Raha Amirfazli A New York-based Filmmaker
Hear Us Awards 2021

Raha Amirfazli is selected among the awardees of the Hear Us Awards 2021!

Launched in December 2020, the inaugural HEAR US Awards (Helping Elevate and Recapitalize Underrepresented Stories), were designed to celebrate and advance student projects that center BIPOC voices and stories, and to fund students actively working to combat systemic marginalization in the creation and leadership of artistic and scholarly works. Emerging from Tisch School of the Arts’s ongoing commitments to dismantle racism, HEAR US demonstrates the pledge to address historical gaps in support, communication, resources and engagement with BIPOC students by creating new opportunities for all underrepresented and marginalized students.

The awardees were selected through a rigorous, multi-step process by a panel of professional artists and scholars, including several Tisch faculty members. This inaugural HEAR US cohort includes graduate and undergraduate students working in a variety of artistic and scholarly disciplines and representing seven Tisch departments.
