Join WFI and Jan Wahl to benefit Generation HERstory Media Arts Project

San Francisco based Women's Film Institute is holding a night of fun and networking to raise funds for our Generation HERstory Media Arts Project initiative (GHMAP).

GHMAP identifies and fosters the next generation of media-makers and broadens public access to arts enrichment by providing free hands-on filmmaking training and mentoring for diverse low-income and at-risk young women (ages 12-19) in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Young women are given the tools to create short films and public-service announcements that authentically reflect their voices. Films created in GHMAP will premiere at the 7th Annual San Francisco International Women's Film Festival (April 2011).

All proceeds from the event will go toward providing scholarships for up to 8 young women to enroll in GHMAP free of charge for the Fall session beginning in September.

Stop by for a drink, to learn more about the Women's Film Institute and Generation Herstory, and participate in our silent auction:
