MFA Student to Screen Short at Alice Fest this Weekend


Carol Hammerstein, a student in UNCG’s MFA program for film and video production, will screen her 9-minute documentary, Girls Rock: Pass It On! at Alice Fest in Durham, North Carolina this Sunday.

Girls Rock North Carolina is a summer music and empowerment camp for teen girls, one of some 40 independent non-profits that have been popping up all over the country. The film looks at the motivation of the women musicians who created this dynamic organization.

Alice Fest is a film and media festival with work by women in recognition of Women’s History Month. It is named for Alice Guy-BlachĂ©, a pioneering filmmaker who is credited with systematically developing narrative filmmaking. The festival takes place Sunday, March 9 at the Full Frame Theater in the American Tobacco District at 320 Blackwell Street.
