Central District-based media arts and leadership nonprofit Reel Grrls is hosting two events this week.
On Tuesday, the nonprofit will screen three new short films at The Crocodile’s monthly event, A Film, A Band, and A Drink. The all-ages event starts at 7; entry is $10. More information on the shorts, from Reel Grrls:
Reel Grrls presents new works in animation, experimental narrative, and documentary. In the documentary While We’re Asleep, kids are the experts in explaining and exploring the world of dreams. Versus invites viewers to open their eyes and change their ways. It recently screened at SIFF in Futurewave Shorts. In the lightbox animated short, The Girl with The Birds, a girl encounters a particularly extraordinary bird.
On Wednesday, the group is co-hosting a fundraiser called A Drink for the Kids at the Neighbor Lady. When you buy a drink from OOLA Distillery or Ninkasi Brewing Company on Wednesday, all proceeds will be donated to The Vera Project. This is the second year Reel Grrls is co-hosting the fundraiser.
