GIFT FEST Spring Break MEET UP
Saturday, March 10th
2:00-4:00pm
FREE

Are you an 8-20 year old creator working on your submission for the Girl Improved (short) Film & Theatre Festival? Looking for collaborators? Need some feedback? Hoping to get some advice? Want to meet other like-minded youth? Then the GIFT Fest Meet Up is right up your alley!

The GIFT Fest Meet Ups are designed to be educational, inspirational and lot of fun. How do we do this? The answer is YOU. We all have skills, advice and energy to share. Let’s get together and help each other be successful!

Please RSVP, as the event may be cancelled if there are not enough reservations.

WHAT IS THE GIFT Fest?
At the GIFT Fest, we believe that young artists who are challenged to create art that is deliberately inclusive will learn that creating entertaining content that is a more accurate representation of our society will benefit their overall development AND make incredible art! By ensuring that girls (or people who are gender non-conforming) are 50% of the equation, we believe that the projects are improved. Thus, they’re “girl improved.

THE FIRST-YEAR CHALLENGE:
To create intentionally inclusive art.
– Creative and production teams must be at least 50% female (or gender nonconforming);
– At least 50% of the characters in the piece must be female (or gender nonconforming);
– And their motivation should be centered outside the realm of romance.

The short films and theatrical pieces must be 10 minutes or less and created by youth ages 8-20. There is no age limit for actors.
