Not Enough Fest and Metro Cinema present THE GIRLS IN THE BAND

Please join Not Enough Fest and Metro Cinema on November 19 at 6:00 pm for a screening of The Girls in the Band, featuring a pre-show performance by the wonderful Marlaena Moore! Proceeds from the film will go to support Not Enough Fest 2016.

THE GIRLS IN THE BAND tells the poignant, untold stories of female jazz and big band instrumentalists and their fascinating, groundbreaking journeys from the late 30s to the present day.

These incredibly talented women endured sexism, racism and diminished opportunities for decades, yet continued to persevere, inspire and elevate their talents in a field that seldom welcomed them. Today, there is a new breed of gifted young women taking their rightful place in the world of jazz, which can no longer deny their talents.
