Over the course of three days, we will help participants to develop, film and edit a 1-3 minute music video that will screen at POWFest in March 2017. The instruction portion of POWGirls will consist of media production training; pre-production (collaborative story creation, storyboarding) camera operation, audio recording, and post-production using industry-standard software. This is a great way to build your resume and/or reel.

Enrollment Limit: 12

Participants should be 15-19 year old girls who are interested in learning how to make a professional movie with a team from start to finish. Girls may be interested in pursuing further studies in drama, film, TV, advertising, marketing, business, etc.Participants must commit to attending every day of the workshop; the work is intense but fun!

It is POWFest’s goal to be inclusive of all women’s voices, regardless of race, class, age, religion, ability, sexuality or gender presentation.
