ABOUT FEMALE VOICES ROCK:
Female Voices Rock is dedicated to supporting diverse female storytellers in the entertainment industry. Our mission is to incite and inspire change that builds a foundation of equality and diversity, ensuring that every voice is heard and championed.
Female Voices Rock launched a one-of-a-kind film festival in 2019, when women comprised only 20% of all directors, writers, producers, editors, and cinematographers working on the top
250 US domestic grossing films, to spotlight women in the film industry and
champion the inclusion of underrepresented storytellers and diverse
BIPOC, LGBTQ+ voices, and other marginalized voices are not given equal space and
have been left to fight for themselves for too long. We are using our platform to create space for the important stories that need to be told, the films that have not be seen, the creators who have not been given an opportunity, and we are here to support filmmakers to the fullest of our abilities through educational programming, workshops, webinars, and networking events. By uplifting those that have been left in the background, we are committed to increasing the diversity in the industry and revolutionizing the filmmaking space.
