10×10 will debut the trailer of their forthcoming feature film, “Girl Rising”, with voice performances by world-renowned actresses including Academy Award winner Meryl Streep, Academy Award nominee Anne Hathaway, and Selena Gomez. The film is directed by Academy Award nominee Richard Robbins. The film tells the extraordinary stories of girls from around the globe fighting to overcome impossible odds to realize their dreams.
10×10 was founded by award-winning journalists at the Documentary Group and Paul G. Allen’s Vulcan Productions. It’s built on a foundation of partnerships with NGOs, corporations, policy makers, and grassroots organizations – all working to change minds, lives, and policy. These organizations provide life-changing services to girls every day, and are among the best practitioners of their kind. The trailer for “Girl Rising” will premiere at the organization’s official launch event to take place on October 10, 2012. You can learn more about 10×10 at their official website. Many thanks to Glenn for the heads-up.
