FEMME - Females Empowered by Movie Making Experiences

FEMME (Females Empowered by Movie Making Experiences) is a Utah Valley University student-organized group for female Digital Cinema Production majors. Once a year they produce a short film that is shot with an all-female crew. The students bring in professional women from the industry to be mentors and to serve as director, cinematographer, gaffer, sound mixer and key grip. Each director has previously directed a feature film. Previous directors have been Jennifer Prediger, Guinevere Turner and Leah Meyerhoff. This is a unique opportunity that gives our female students an added opportunity to learn and the chance to network with professionals and make friends within the program.

“My experience making a film at UVU with an entire female cast and crew was rewarding, lovely, and professionally satisfying as well.”
