Watch The Trailer: 'Outlaws'

Take a look at the trailer for "Outlaws," one of the six short films made as part of our Los Angeles film challenge in 2020

Four years ago, we hosted our signature film challenge (Women's Weekend Film Challenge) in Los Angeles. We worked with 180 women and non-binary filmmakers to produce six short films, which we premiered at ArcLight Hollywood to a packed audience of 400 industry members.

Below, watch the trailer for "Outlaws," one of the six films made as part of our film challenge.

We selected the cast and crew from hundreds of applications. This team of filmmakers in every role of production — previously strangers — met at a pre-production meeting for the first time. At 6 p.m. on Thursday, we kicked off the challenge by pulling a different genre out of a hat for each team and providing a prop that every team had to include in the film. Then, the teams had to write, shoot, and edit their films in just 78 hours before submitting the finished product at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday evening.

Moonshot Initiative provided the cinema-quality gear courtesy of our sponsors, location permits, production insurance, stipends to submit to film festivals, a premiere screening and after-party, and more.

“Outlaws” cast and crew:

Adanna Paul, Aimee Wu, Bonnie D. Bellevue, Daniella Kertesz, Elizabeth Del Re, Emma Selinski, Erin Stepp, Farah R. Rashdan, Francesca Eaddy, Hailey Gomez, Jack X Proctor, Jenny Costello, Julia Hirsch, Julianne Donelle, Kate Henrikson, Katie A. King, Khrystyna Iaroshenko, Merridith Allen, Minaya Wright, Nina Gortinski, Rafif Haj Ahmad, Selena Rae Webb, Silvia Lara, Tiana Lucerne Cheung, Tierra Castro, Ying Ding

“Outlaws” was created by Team Stella, named after director Stella Meghie. Each team has a namesake in order to highlight women and non-binary filmmakers our community looks up to.
