About this Event

Ghetto Film School (GFS) is an award-winning nonprofit founded in 2000 to educate, develop and celebrate the next generation of great American storytellers. With locations in New York City, Los Angeles and London, GFS is the most elite and inclusive film academy in the world, equipping students for top universities and careers in the creative industries through two tracks: an introductory education program for high school students and early-career support for alumni and young professionals. GFS annually serves over 6,000 individuals, 14-34 years of age.

FFFEST is a weekend-long screening and talk series celebrating the achievements of women filmmakers in cinema. The festival screens overlooked films and provides a platform and community for cinephiles and filmmakers to share resources and guidance. Launched in 2018, the festival was created by Passerbuys and Women & Film with hopes to inspire more women to make films. Join FFFEST this year at the NYC launch for rare films and discussions with filmmakers who’ve made impressive strides in cinema; including Laurie Simmons, Shirin Neshat, Desiree Akhavan, Erin Lee Carr, Dianna Agron and more.

The following shorts speak to topics of identity formation, complex relationships and acceptance of our mortality. Written through the lens of young women, this screening represents some of the best new voices of the next generation.
