Join us for a spectacular night of honoring the stories of amazing women and girls from our Portland community! This is a night to keep it local and learn about the experiences of women in Portland. We will watch 4 short documentaries by Portland’s powerhouse young filmmakers from Produced By Her by Vox Siren. Their shorts will explore The Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children in Oregon, The Importance of Safe Space in the LGBTQ community, women and street art, and the experience of black girls in Portland. Vox Siren will also be presenting a short documentary about the girls experience becoming becoming filmmakers.
POWGirls will be showing their original short films from this Summer’s video workshops.
POWGirls help girls 15-19 year olds realize their power, creativity and voice in media production and encourages them to explore opportunities as future media-makers.
Our Emcee for the evening is the charismatic and inspirational founder of Client Joy, Paige Hendrix Buckner. Following the films there will be a panel discussion about the film and the importance of women lead story creation.
