Our Los Angeles launch

After hosting three film challenges in New York City, we hosted our inaugural Los Angeles challenge in February 2020. During this LA challenge, we made 6 films with 180 professional female filmmakers, then premiered those films at ArcLight Hollywood on March 5, 2020.

Due to COVID-19, we have not yet resumed our in-person challenges. We will be announcing our next challenge via our email list and on social media.

Check out some press, film clips and statistics from our LA launch.
