Ten teens who participated in a month-long filmmaking workshop organized by Kipalaya Productions under Plan International's 'Girls Get Equal' campaign have produced a film each in two weeks after a month of learning the craft. On September 10, the films were screened by the Film Development Board.
The training, titled 'Women Make Films', was supported by Oscar International College and the Film Development Board. The average length of each film was five minutes. The one-month workshop, held from July 19 to August 19, aimed to break stereotypes about women and increase their participation in filmmaking.
Ashruti Tripathi, Pradhanya Yonjan, Angela Chaudhary, Pushpa Joshi, Purnima Maharjan, Ambika Bhandari, Asmita Lawati, Shreesha Kunwar, Mira Khadka, and Jyoti Belbase participated in the workshop. Trainer Rajan Kathet said the workshop has also helped the teens develop social skills.
