About the Film:
This year, Hawai‘i Women in Filmmaking held a series of Reel Camps for Girls, covering everything from basic filmmaking to stop-motion animation, and its Making Media that Matters after-school filmmaking program. In partnership with Hawai‘i Women in Filmmaking we screen the incredible work young women produced in these two important programs. See films that stretch across genre lines including animation, comedy, drama, horror, and beyond.
Reel Camps for Girls are week-long intensive filmmaking programs that teach participants how to produce a short film. In the animation camps, participants learn the principles and techniques of animation using industry-standard camera, editing software, and more.
Making Media That Matters is a program for girls in which participants develop film and critical-thinking skills by examining issues in their communities. The program provides a platform for girls to tell their stories and be agents of social change through film. Making Media That Matters is filmmaking for civic engagement and social justice.
Hawai‘i Women in Filmmaking is a feminist nonprofit organization committed to achieving gender equity in filmmaking and other creative media arts. It is a creative, safe space where film and media-makers connect, create, mentor, and inspire current and future generations of women to explore and pursue careers in the field of filmmaking. By providing access to a broad network of resources, education, leadership, and support, the organization creates the conditions for women and girls to express themselves through the medium of film; raise awareness and visibility of women’s and girls’ work in film; and promote a diverse and positive representation of girls and women in media.
