    I was unable to attend (my film was an official selection), but my family was soo impressed by the hospitality, professionalism, and quality of films being showcased at Film Girl Film Festival.

  • I've screened work at Film Girl Film for two years now. My favorite thing about Film Girl Film is that it really lives out its mission of showcasing underrepresented voices, from no-budget first-time filmmakers to established production houses . Screenings with a community feel and great networking opportunities, and it keeps branching out and getting better. Andrea, the festival director, is fabulous-- she really puts her heart and soul into this festival.
