Over the course of 30 hours, a group of 15-18 year old girls concepted, wrote, filmed and edited two films–Great Expectations and Words of Wisdom–at MetroEast Community Media. The mission of POWGirls is to help girls realize their power, creativity and voice in media production and encourage them to explore opportunities as future filmmakers. We want to encourage girls to be creative, tech-savvy leaders.
