Reel Grrls empowers young women and gender non-conforming folks from diverse communities to realize their power, talent, and influence through media production.
Reel Grrls equips and empowers people ages 11 and up to engage critically and creatively with digital media to create positive social change.
Reel Grrls provides media literacy training in collaboration with community partners to help women, grrls, gender non-conforming folks, and male allies from diverse communities interpret and respond to the flood of gendered and racialized images and messages they encounter in our media saturated world.
Reel Grrls serves people of all economic means, with 85% of students receiving Reel Grrls scholarships annually. Since 2001, over 5000 students have participated in Reel Grrls programs and Reel Grrls media have been honored in more than 90 film festivals globally.
We are supported by an amazing team of volunteers, activists, filmmakers, and facilitators, without whom we wouldn't exist! Click below to meet the Reel Family.
