Reel Grrls Birthday Bash

Join Reel Grrls for our 15th Birthday Bash!



Can’t Make it?



Since 2001, Reel Grrls has empowered over 1,000 students with the mentorship and skills to create and critique media. Our alumni have used the skills they learned in our programs to build careers in film production, digital media, comedy, academic scholarship, and beyond. Today, Reel Grrls serves youth of all economic means, with 85% of students receiving Reel Grrls scholarships last year. We’re proud of the resources and community we’ve been able to provide young women and gender non-conforming youth across Washington state!

2016 marks our 15th birthday, and we want to celebrate our accomplishments, and ask for all that attend to help invest in our future with a donation that is significant to you.

Come join us for food, dancing, girl power and a rocking good time at Zoe Events at 1318 E Union St in Seattle’s Capitol Hill.

7:30pm Performance by Reel Grrl Alum Instisaar

“Intisaar is a Seattle-based duo comprised of Tess (Intisaar) Jubran on guitar/vocals, and Natalie Mai Hall on cello. In a live setting, they are a dynamic acoustic powerhouse rich with emotive melody, hard-hitting rhythms, and compelling arrangements. Tess was a Reel Grrl as a teenager and then went on to mentor. She attributes much of her confidence as a female in a male dominated industry to her time spent around inspiring girls and women at Reel Grrls. “

8:00 pm Formal Program

The Future is Feminist because our past was feminist. We are thrilled to honor our founding feminist champions Ti Locke, Lucia Ramierz, and Fidelma McGinn!  We will take a quick look into our past and ask everyone to invest in the future. Be ready to swipe your card or write your check to support our next generation of media makers!
