Loyola Marymount University presents GRRRLS ON FILM, a free festival featuring films and music from groundbreaking female artists, on the LMU campus March 18, 19 and 20, 2016

Confirmed participants include Penelope Spheeris (The Decline of Western Civilization, Wayne’s World), Floria Sigismondi (The Runaways), Karyn Kusama (Girlfight), Alice Bag (the Bags), Kim and the Created, Nao Bustamante, Phranc, Allison Wolfe (Bratmobile), Colleen Green, Kari Krome, Peach Kelli Pop, Nicole Panter, Raquel Gutiérrez, Jill Reiter (In Search of Margo-go) and Lizzie Borden (Born in Flames)

In the early 1990s, a group of young women in punk rock declared Revolution Girl Style, and took over the means of production by forming labels, making fanzines, creating art, and directing films. In 2015, the film industry is under investigation by the U.S. government for gender bias and inequity. Filmmakers and scholars will discuss the quest for girl power in Hollywood and beyond.
