In partnership with the Women’s Foundation of Arkansas - Girls of Promise Initiative and JM Associates, the Arkansas Cinema Society presents the Filmmaking Lab for Teen Girls.
This lab is for high school girls who dream of following in the footsteps of Regina King, Cholé Zhao, Ruth Carter, Kathryn Bigelow, BERT&BERTIE, Reed Morano, and other female directors, cinematographers, costume designers, editors, and screenwriters.This lab will provide an opportunity for high-school girls between the ages of 16-18 to experience all aspects of the filmmaking process, from screenwriting to production to editing. No prior filmmaking experience is necessary and the lab is FREE.
Guided by seasoned filmmakers the participants will develop a 3-5 minute short film with an emphasis on women’s empowerment and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) throughout the eight-week program. The finished short film will premiere during ACS’s annual FILMLAND festival.
