Event Details

Austin-based filmmaker, Andrew Bujalski's most recent film, Support the Girls, has a strong female cast that lead us through a world where many assumptions are made though little is publicly known. Support the Girls exposes a community that reaches beyond Austin, and in that way it breaks a mold.

This evening's program includes a film screening and Q&A with filmmaker Andrew Bujalski. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
