I'm Gonna Play Loud: Girls Rock Regina and the Ripple Effect
Charity Marsh, 2020, 30:40 min

Research on Girls Rock camps often focuses on how youth are empowered. For this documentary, the lens turns toward the adult artists, organizers, mentors, and campers of Girls Rock Regina, highlighting how their participation builds confidence, fosters friendships, and sparks joy. I'm Gonna Play Loud reveals some of the many challenges that women and non-binary musicians face and how their experiences with GRR have inspired them to make change within Regina's local music scenes.

Girls Rock Regina (GRR) is dedicated to amplifying and empowering the voices of girls, women, trans, Two-Spirit and gender-expansive youth and adults through music creation, collaboration and performance.
