GRRL HAUS CINEMA is an ongoing program of short films and video art made by women. A mix of local, national, and international artists present work from a variety of disciplines: narrative, documentary, experimental, and conceptual. With an emphasis on low budget and DIY, GRRL HAUS is a space for underrepresented voices in the arts today.
The annual event takes place at the historic Brattle Theatre in Cambridge, MA. The event has showcased over 60 filmmakers, including multiple musical performances, video art installations, and local Boston vendors.

*for 2017 we had 248 submissions and selected 90 films to screen at different events. We keep archives of all submissions, so even though we might not select your film for a current event, there is always chance that we will select it for a future screening.*
The screenings listed are roughly in the order that they will be scheduled. So the earlier you submit the bigger chance you have to be considered for all the events. But we are constantly planning more screenings, so there will always be more to be considered for!
