Film is a powerful medium for social commentary and social change. It is a dynamic way to tell a story that is also fun and creative. We believe that such film is needed as a tool to promote a community that denounces media that promotes rape culture, violent masculinity, and social injustice while engage the discussion of personal responsibility and accountability.
We are excited to have Coquie Hughes kick off
