Final Girls is a collective of women who are professional filmmakers living and working in Metro Detroit. We share resources, host workshops, film screenings and networking events and hold a monthly meeting for our members where we check in with one another and discuss a topic relevant to our experience as women in the industry. Though we represent filmmaking in a wide array of genres, our name is derived from a horror film trope coined by film theorist  Carol J. Clover in her 1992 book Men, Women, and Chainsaws: Gender in the Modern Horror Film. More about that here. 

We strive to adhere to a set of core values. Those are stated HERE.
