Zain joins NOFS this year as a Programming Fellow. Raised and educated in Mississippi, Zain has a deep love and appreciation for the people and culture of the South. And the food. Obviously the food. An obsessive cinephile, Zain is very excited to be a part of the programming team this year to assist them in all they do to uplift and showcase new voices. When he’s not working with the NOFS, you can find him at a local movie theater or the nearest coffee shop trying his very best to reach his goal of reading at least one book a year.
The programming fellowship is a new program designed to build skills and experience related to film programming and curation.
