"The Anniversary" - A CSUN Thesis Production

Our Story

The Anniversary is a CSUN Thesis short film by Jordan Zarou. It follows Salim, a young Palestinian man who, when invited back to his hometown in Detroit for his parent's anniversary, must decide between his dream as a musician and moving back home to help his family in a post 9/11, 2002. This film explores the dichotomy of Eastern and Western ideals of individualism, family, and personal dreams. 

Our Goals

Your donations will go toward standard production costs that come with a film of this scale! All of your contributions will go directly to these costs:

  • Locations
  • Camera and Lighting Rentals
  • Production Design
  • Costuming
  • Make-up and Special Effects
  • Casting
  • Food and water for the crew and cast
  • Post-production costs

Every cent helps! We appreciate every donation big or small.


Your Benefit 

Supporting our film via this CSUN funder page allows your contributions to be 100% TAX DEDUCTIBLE. This means that the California State University, Northridge Foundation is a charitable, non-profit, 501(c)(3) public benefit organization. More reason to support!
