host your own
Whether you’re climbing the corporate ladder or starting your own business we don’t often get a chance to revel in the stories of authentic, vulnerable, and ambitious women.
From balancing family life, to talking about self-sabotage, to women supporting other women- Dream, Girl shares 10 diverse stories with all the nuances of what it’s like to be a woman in business today. Host a panel discussion after the film to dive into the topics or themes in the film that resonate most with you. We provide a 24-page post screening Q&A discussion guidebook to help facilitate conversations after the film.
Dream, Girl was produced by an all-female crew and was directed by feminist filmmaker Erin Bagwell. After being sexually harassed at her 9 to 5, Erin quit her job to launch a Kickstarter campaign to produce the film. She raised $100K in 30 days to produce Dream, Girl and two years later it premiered at Obama’s White House in May 2016.
Since the launch of the film Erin’s team has facilitated over 350+ movie screening events in over 60 different countries. It's the perfect event to ignite the women in your community to dream big, and we always say the best part of the night is the conversations that happen after the film about the challenges and triumphs women in the workplace face.
Let the stories in the film inspire your community to connect, share, and feel seen.

We made it a “bring your daughter” event for our co-workers and clients, and everyone loved it. The film is motivational, and it’s great to see such a diverse group of female entrepreneurs and role models in the film.
Although we are a large corporation, the entrepreneurial spirit is encouraged and celebrated at Starbucks. We left the screening so energized about the role of women in driving innovation.
The film was a very big eye-opener of the work that still needs to be done. Men should learn and will learn a lot from Dream, Girl.

book our director, erin
For the last five years I've been immersed in the feminist community, traveled worldwide with the film, and spoken at Obama’s White House, NASA, TIME, and Goldman Sach. My passion, inspiration, and motivation come from speaking alongside the film and having meaningful and sometimes uncomfortable conversations about gender. Why? Because I was sexually harassed at the last job I worked for before starting Dream, Girl. I never wants anyone to feel like the work they do doesn’t matter because of who they are, and am dedicated to making the workplace more inclusive.
- Erin, director of Dream, Girl

What should I do after the screening?
