We won’t wait for the Apocalypse!
Covid19 is slowly revealing that we must all become the prototype of the Phoenix rising through the ashes. We are a world undergoing a transformation right now. As the fast-spreading disease is commanding social distancing, it highlights the loss of the usual physical connections that bind us to each other.
At GRRL HAUS CINEMA we were forced to cancel all our events during this Corona season, and every artist on our program list was left without a show venue. Energized and in defiance of the virus, we want now more than ever to keep going. We want the artists to keep going. We want to encourage them to stay active, to create, and most importantly to show their work.
So, we have a plan and a need for fundraising.
We are running a fundraising campaign to keep GRRL HAUS relevant and viable. We want to reverse the status quo of art being left behind in times of crisis when it is needed most.
For the next two months we are organizing upcoming online screenings, which we will curate and present live on our platform.
Because of this crisis we are realizing that the international portion of our residency is unlikely to occur this summer. Instead we are planning to run the residency as planned but with local artists if the Corona fates allow.
The funding for planning, programing, and promoting the online screening events, and the late summer local artists residency will be generated from this fundraiser. We would be inviting the artists to participate for free.

About GRRL HAUS:
GRRL HAUS CINEMA is an ongoing program of short ﬁlms and video art made by women, as well as non-binary, genderqueer, and trans people. A mix of local, national, and international artists present work from a variety of disciplines: narrative, documentary, experimental, and conceptual. With an emphasis on low budget and DIY, GRRL HAUS is a space for underrepresented voices in the arts today.
GRRL HAUS is not your typical ﬁlm festival, instead of having one big event - we have multiple events throughout the year. Our goal is to show as many quality short ﬁlms made by women, non-binary, genderqueer, and trans people to an international audience.
We completely celebrate DIY culture and focus on sharing works to all diﬀerent types of audiences. This can include audiences at international museums or to audiences at underground clubs. We believe that every audience deserves the chance to see these works, rather than just the typical ﬁlm festival networking crowd. We want to reach all audiences and celebrate the inclusivity of creative and unique work in film.
GRRL HAUS started in 2014 at the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge, MA, USA. In 2016 GRRL HAUS relocated to Berlin Germany and started hosting small screenings of local films. As we established are identity in Berlin we began to include music and arts.
Within the past few years we have grown to not just showcase films, but also art, music, dance, photography, handmade crafts and clothing, and even tarot, astrology and spiritual meet ups. The idea of GRRL HAUS is constantly expanding. We believe in no boundaries for creativity and are constantly looking for new ways to celebrate the work of underrepresented people.
In the summer of 2019 we began the Berlin filmmaker 2 week-long intensive Screen Your Film Seminar. This is an opportunity for artists to have two public screenings of their films and lead an artist talk as well as answering public Q and A’s regarding their practices. During this time artists have time to develop new projects and explore Berlin and discover it’s film and art scene.
This opportunity is well suited for emerging (female identified, non-binary, genderqueer, and trans ) filmmakers and video artists who already have completed works to be shown, and have a desire to work in and explore Berlin.
