Hey, I'm Yasmin!
Yasmin Mistry is an Emmy-nominated animator and filmmaker. Her work has been displayed worldwide including recent showings at the White House and United Nations as well as at film festivals such as Cannes, SXSW, Tribeca and Clermont-Ferrand. She is the recipient of the Puffin Foundation’s 2013 film grant, the Brooklyn Arts Council’s 2014 - 2017 film grants, and the winner of the Jessie Streich-Kest Memorial Grant. Her first live-action film, “Feeling Wanted” was an official selection of more than 25 film festivals. The film won 12 awards and was nominated for Best Short Film of 2015 by Adoption At The Movies. When not working as an artist, Yasmin dedicates her time to the foster youth of New York City. As a Court Appointed Special Advocate, she received the 2012 Advocate of The Year Award for her dedication to getting services for foster care children with special needs. Yasmin was inspired to create this film when she realized the voices of the children she worked with were not being heard and their stories never told.
