GRRL HAUS CINEMA, is a film festival, screening series, and collective dedicated to promoting the works of women, trans, non-binary, and genderqueer filmmakers in the realms of experimental, low-budget, and underground cinema.

Our emphasis on low budget and DIY culture creates a space for underrepresented voices in cinema to be heard by promoting creativity and diversity of expression through film.

Our aim is to offer a platform for emerging filmmakers and those without easy access to film funding by celebrating the innovative creativity that blossoms despite limited financial resources.

Diverging from traditional film festivals, GRRL HAUS adopts a dynamic model, hosting multiple events throughout the year reliably showcasing high-quality short films for a global audience.

We are based in both Berlin Germany EU and Boston Massachusetts USA with both locations hosting screenings throughout the year. We hold quarterly screenings at “The Brattle Theatre” in Cambridge MA, monthly screenings at Loophole Berlin, and outdoor summer screenings at “Mobile Kino Berlin”. We also host many pop-up screenings throughout the year at various DIY venues including international museums and underground clubs. Following the screenings, filmmakers provide insights into their work through Q&A sessions.
