Yola Lu embodies comedic life. Fingers always in many pies, Yola experiments with all types of comedy, from sketch to improv to stand-up. But being funny isn't her only dream; she also wants to give a voice to other Asian American comediennes (and a laugh to their audiences).
Francine Thirteen is a mythmaker and music is her medium. Proprietor of the "ritual pop" genre, the Dallas native uses feminine energy to birth music into the world, telling stories that work with ancient female archetypes to reclaim what was once meant to control us.
Jinni J is an Austin-based photographer with an eye for the beautiful. Armed with a camera, she is always ready to dissect what it means to be feminine, to perform, to be of a certain gender. Her recent foray into filmmaking, as co-director for the music video of Monte's "Naive", has also been a huge success, as it premiered on Creators. You can also catch it at BabesFest!
In "Jackson," her first feature length film, Maisie Crow tells the story of Mississippi's last abortion provider and gives viewers insight into the subtle tactics used by crisis pregnancy centers that further women's reproductive health choices. Catch the film at BABES FEST '17: Film on July 28.
