POWGirls offers workshops in video production, cinematography, audio recording, set lighting, digital editing and media literacy for girls ages 15-19. Instructors are working media producers who inspire girls to be creative, tech-savvy leaders who will help realize gender equity in the film industry. All films produced during POWGirls workshops are screened at the Portland Oregon Women's Film Festival (POWFest).
They have announced two summer 2017 workshops:
Summer Workshop I: INTRO TO FILMMAKING, June 19-23, 2017
Over the course of five days, participants will collaboratively develop, film and edit an original short film. Learn collaborative story creation, story boarding, script writing, DSLR camera operation, audio recording, lighting, and post-production video using Adobe Premiere Pro.

Summer Workshop II: ADVANCED DOCUMENTARY WORKSHOP, July 17-23, 2017. Sign up at: http://www.powgirls.com/upcoming-workshops.html
Over the course of seven days, we will help participants to work with a team to develop, film and edit a 1-3 minute promo piece for a non-profit client.
The instruction portion of POWGirls will consist of media production training; pre-production (collaborative concept development, working with a client) camera operation, audio recording, and post-production using industry-standard software. This is a great addition to complement a portfolio of narrative work.
POWGirls supports all girls in their media education, regardless of race, ethnicity, class, religion, ability, sexuality or gender expression.
POWGirls is made possible with support from The Faerie Godmother Family Fund, RACC and MetroEast Community Media.
