User Bio

We are a group of filmmakers who are all current or past mentors or staff of Reel Grrls (reelgrrls.org), an after-school filmmaking program for teenage girls.

In 2008 we joined together to enter the International Documentary Challenge (documentarychallenge.org), a timed filmmaking competition. The competition is five days long. Teams receive a theme and a genre on the first day, and turn in their final film before midnight on the end of the fifth day. Our entry that year, "Click Whoosh," won the grand prize: Best Film.

Since then, we've competed as a team in the International Documentary Challenge every year. We've learned from each other and grown as filmmakers, and we've had lots of fun making 7 short documentaries to date. These films have screened internationally at over 20 festivals, winning a total of 9 awards.
