    This film is for all the voices of women that are silenced and the bodies that nearly break on their way to escape.
    You are not broken, you are complete...and there is no lid on your jar.

    About Reclaim:

    Last year, women in the media and around North America finally stood up together to create a united front against their oppressors and abusers. Their bravery has encouraged others to share their stories and has also helped women acknowledge and learn from these traumatic aspects of their experience.

    Through this growth and understanding, arrived a very personal realization and question that seems common among all of us: “Where do I go from here?”. This year, we want to conduct a conversation around the importance of retrieving your power from where you left it or where it was taken from you without your permission. How will you take back what rightfully belongs to you? How will you reclaim it?

    With our last campaign (Sisterhood), we learned the importance of surrounding yourself with a community of strong women who only wish to see you grow, develop and succeed. We redefined the concept of sisterhood, encouraging intersectionality in feminism and diversity in the media and learning how to build strong, genuine friendships. This year is no different. A journey to wholeness is not one taken alone. Which is why we’re trying to listen to as many stories this year as we can and create opportunities for us to share our own. We hope to discover what it truly means to reclaim our space, voices, bodies, dreams, mind and power -- Using our own experiences to connect with other women’s experiences in creative spaces.
