    They Create Films

    Shattering gender inequity, our online programs empower underrepresented girls and non-binary youth to create festival-ready films under the tutelage of Hollywood professionals in a safe, collaborative space. We teach storytelling and technological skills, preparing them for a wide range of industry jobs as they create innovative reels needed for entrance into top film programs and careers. Alumni may produce films made by GirlsINFocus, earn professional credits, teach film enrichment courses for LAUSD, and join our Youth Advisory Board.
