ABOUT

A film about the true story of female DJs from around the world in a male dominated industry. No one would think that the electronic music industry is in conflict, but the truth is that DJs are more segregated that politicians or business executives. 

Girls Gone Vinyl is the world's first documentary about female DJs, their struggles and successes, what inspires them and what drives them in spite of overwhelming odds. Watch these women converge on Detroit for the largest electronic music festival in North America and hear their stories firsthand.

THE PLAN

Preproduction will begin immediately. Shooting will commence promptly at the start of the Movement Electronic Music Festival in Detroit which takes place May 28 to 30, 2011. To learn more about the festival please visit their site http://www.movement.us/

Out of 107 acts at the festival there are 6 female DJs preforming. We will be interviewing and filming their performances at the festival itself and numerous afterparties taking place during the weekend. 

We will also be hosting our own all female DJ line up event during the festival on Sunday May 29th. 

WHERE DOES YOUR MONEY GO?

We're producing, directing, shooting, and editing the film. By day, Jenny Lafemme is a video and film producer for Parliament Studios, who will handle film production and post-production. Funding for this project goes toward flight costs for DJs to interview, travel for shooting, camera equipment needed to produce beautiful footage, and marketing and PR costs. The movie will be shot digitally to reduce cost and speed up production. All people working on the film will be donating their time and talent to bring this story to life.
