Last week, in Park City, Utah, the 10×10 team revealed an exciting sneak peak of the Girl Rising documentary, kick-starting a week abuzz with anticipation about the film’s premiere on March 7th.

10 x 10 hosted a panel in which we discussed everything from the creation of our film to our innovative crowdsourced distribution model with Gathr films. We’d like to extend a huge thank you to our panelists, who all exhibited an extraordinary amount of passion and perspective throughout the discussion.

The panel was then followed by an incredible event in the evening, hosted by our strategic partner Intel, where we debuted our official trailer and screened the Peru chapter of Girl Rising to a packed house!

Sundance was an enormous success for Girl Rising, which makes an insurmountable difference in our mission to increase awareness about global female empowerment and education through the narrative of nine inspiring girls. We couldn’t be more proud of Girl Rising, and all of the people involved in its making. The countdown to our theatrical release on March 7th has officially begun!
