Join us Friday to support our grant recipients

Costume Party

We hope to see you 6:30 p.m. Friday as we support females in filmmaking at the Firereel Film Festival’s Gala Event at Old City Hall. Tickets are $20

Shasta County Arts Council received a $9,500 grant from The Women’s Fund of Shasta Regional Community Foundation for the Females in Filmmaking program, which has connected young women to the digital world, specifically the film industry.

Friday’s event concludes a three-week class sponsored by one of our grants. It has resulted in several young women receiving training and hands-on involvement in the creation of a short digital film. Read more about our grants here.
