The Storefront Arts Initiative presents the inaugural FEMINIST FUCK IT FESTIVAL

From the family friendly to the downright nasty, the FEMINIST FUCK IT FEST is a curated festival of multidisciplinary women and non binary-identifying artists presenting original, bold, and entertaining works of art. The Festival will take place at 360 Geary Lane from April 11th – April 22nd.    

Over the past two years, amidst a wave of women-led movements, #metoo, and Time’s Up, feminism has moved the fuck up to the front lines of social debate. The female led team at The Storefront agree – Fuck it! Time IS up! In the spirit of moving forward and supporting each other, FFIF CELEBRATES the female experiences from a multitude of perspectives. FFIF will proudly give a platform to 100 artists: actors, directors, writers, musicians, puppetry-makers, comedians, filmmakers, producers, and technicians.

Headlining production GANGA’S GANJA will play throughout the festival- on 4/20 dude- every night at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2:00pm. By Radha S. Menon, and presented with the generous support of Hamilton’s Red Betty Theatre, Ganga’s Ganja is a tale of two sisters, medical marijuana and a snake. Timely, political, sexy and featuring POC Ganga’s Ganja is sure to delight and challenge audience members. Our featured production will be followed by nightly programming at 9:00pm and 10:30pm; a unique curation including returning Fringe hits, new play readings, a UK import, cabarets, musicals, puppetry, queer comedy nights, feminist film screenings, rock shows, and so much more!

Curatorial team Jasmine Chen, Michaela Washburn, Sedina Fiati, Bahia Watson, Claire Burns and Bri Proke and everyone at the Storefront are stoked to transform 360 Geary Lane into one heaving estrogen laden art space for two weeks in April.

Stay tuned for more details – show descriptions and a full schedule will be released in March.
