Anastasia Cazabon, the mind behind Grrl Haus Cinema, describes the Boston-born festival as an effort to represent female filmmakers who are criminally undervalued. Emphasizing independent and DIY filmmaking, the event boasts a diverse roster of twenty female artists coming from a wide range of backgrounds, both local and international. It’s the kind of event that feels rare to the filmmaking community—a chance to submit your work and embrace the identity that makes it speak. Likewise, it’s a chance for the community to give these artists the support and opportunity for feedback they are all too often robbed of in a male-dominated industry.
So what does that mean for you? It means that coming out to Grrl Haus is more than just buying a ticket. Your attendance at this event shows your support to a new generation of filmmakers whose unique voices and expanding visions challenge the increasingly familiar and stale material of our current visual arts. The list could go on and on as to why you should be here, but the real question is: why wouldn’t you be here? This event is kickass and supports the arts.
