GIRLS’ VOICES NOW
Our Girls’ Voices Now program empowers girls and femme-identifying youth from low-income and underrepresented communities of the greater Los Angeles area to find, develop, and use their voice for positive social change through filmmaking.
Over the course of a few weeks, students learn how to create their own short documentary and how to use the medium of film to affect positive social-change in their communities.
Our youth program, Girls’ Voices Now:
- Empowers the next generation of women and femme-identifying filmmakers and changemakers through personal and professional development.
- Builds pathways for crucial, underrepresented voices to access the film and entertainment industries.
- Produces relevant, powerful short films with strong educational value for all ages.
