All short films in the festival are free thanks to Chorus.

A celebratory and empowering documentary look at young Kiwi musicians banding together as they attend Girls Rock Camp Aotearoa, a yearly girls, trans, and non-binary only rock & roll themed camp where music is the medium to empower our young people.

Created and run by female, trans, and non-binary industry professionals who want to change the power balance in the industry, we follow the mentors, interns, and campers throughout the week witnessing the triumphs & tribulations of taking part.

As we lead up to the final showcase, we get an insight into the profound effect this incredibly groundbreaking and powerful kaupapa can have on our rangatahi.

This film is part of a Doc Edge Originals collection from around Aotearoa / New Zealand, funded by The Doc Edge Rei Foundation Film Fund, which aims to facilitate the creation of documentaries tailored specifically for youth, offering stories and new perspectives that will help youth to broaden their worldview and set them up to be responsible members of the global community.

Doc Edge Shorts are also supported by Shift72.
