Film Festival by Girls from @CampReelStories

I’m a huge believer in having women and girls represented in media in all the ways women and girls show up in the real world, and in all the ways we women and girls can dream up.

Even today after lots more opportunities for women and girls to be represented in media, there’s still a need for more.
