#AltGirlCinema brings an alternative cinematic representation of women’s lives to Austin through monthly screenings. Alt Girl deviates from the mainstream, screening contemporary art films across a plethora of genres, including horror, sci-fi, documentary, experimental, and more. Alt Girl stresses the importance of complex characters giving a multidimensional view of womanhood in today’s society. Alt Girl Cinema is hosted by the Women's Community Center of Central Texas.

This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
