It’s an honor to be featured at the blog of Miss Independent! Read about the origins of Girls’ Voices Matter, why the program is just for girls, and how we can address the lack of women all aspects of film, from directing to acting to cinematography. While you’re there, read about the many inspirational women profiled at the site. I especially enjoyed this poignant account of the author’s visit to The House of Anne Frank in Amsterdam. 

Thank you to Bridget Gorham, aka Miss Independent, for featuring Girls’ Voices Matter.

The Corona Virus Outbreak: Here’s What We’re Doing

 

Keeping safe

During the corona virus epidemic, Girls’ Voices Matter has cancelled all of its remaining March events. We may also need to cancel or postpone our class, Digital Photography, scheduled for Ophelia’s Place in May 2020.

As of this writing, we are still planning to offer our Summer 2020 Workshops.

We will inform you of any changes as soon as we know. Thanks for your patience.

Keeping busy

We’ve compiled a list of online photography and video resources for students and parents (see below).

At our Instagram page, we’re sharing a creative idea for video and photography every day.

At Facebook, we share inspiring stories about the accomplishments of women and girls.

We’re working on an online version of our presentation, “Women Filmmakers of the Pacific Northwest.” It will be available at our website as soon as it’s complete.

We hope to have a YouTube channel up soon with video instruction.

Visionaries: Female Filmmakers 1910-Today

Screen Shot 2019-01-28 at 2.50.36 PMI’m happy to share Visionaries: Female Filmmakers 1910-Today. Girls’ Voices Matter staff member Kacie Clark researched and wrote this compelling and interesting account of eight important women in film. From Alice Guy Lache, born in 1873, who started her own film company in 1910, to Best Picture winner, director Katherine Bigelow (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty) these women have broken barriers and created some of the most memorable work in film today. We hope this document will inspire you!
