Grrl Haus Cinema
Run Time: 90 min.
GRRL HAUS CINEMA is an ongoing program of short films and video art made by women, non-binary, trans and genderqueer artists. 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 media arts.
GRRL HAUS CINEMA is back at the Brattle Theatre for our annual Best of 2022 Short Films event.
