On signing Iqbal to the roster, Caleb Dewart, managing partner at Hungry Man, said “Iqbal’s depth as a filmmaker is what gets us excited. Telling honest stories with a cinematic eye is a true gift and Iqbal has it. His energy and enthusiasm are infectious and his relentlessness and intelligence are an inspiration. It’s one thing to light up a room with your energy. It’s another thing to light up a room and have something to say.”

To join such a talented roster of directors is humbling and inspiring. I’ve been warmly welcomed into the family, and I can’t wait to get started and to tell visual and emotional stories with them.”
