On Saturday, Hamlin grade 7 students (Maggie and Caitlin), along with their older Hamlin alumnae sisters (Charlotte and Ella), hosted the 3rd annual Noe Valley Girls Film Festival. The festival was held at Noe Valley Ministry and brought together 250 people to enjoy films by girls from all over the world, notably from: Iran, China, Germany, France, and Spain.
The Noe Valley Girls Film Festival’s (“NVGFF”) mission is to encourage young girls to make movies with goals of creating a new generation of movie makers, promoting Noe Valley, and having fun.
In early 2016, a group of girls living in Noe Valley decided to form NVGFF. They loved making movies and wanted to give an opportunity to other young girls to make and present their movies to a real live audience. The girls started creating films in elementary school (at Hamlin) and have collectively made almost fifty movies. They enjoyed film making so much that they decided to start a festival for all of the girls of Noe Valley. They have been meeting every week and believe the film festival will be a great way to bring the people of Noe Valley together to watch films, and try to help girls feel empowered to be involved in film making.
