THE GROUP CHAT: FILM/TV PODCASTS WE'RE LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW - FEMALE LENS

Filmmaker Alma Har’el founded Free The Bid in response to her experiences as a woman director. In this podcast, you can hear the story of how Free The Bid made a measurable difference for women directors in the advertising industry, and learn about the nonprofit’s evolution into FREE THE WORK, a data-driven and more inclusive force for change.

This interview was brought to you by A Female Lens, a podcast for filmmakers and creatives co-hosted by Jennifer Zahlit and Larkin Bell. Each episode highlights women in the film industry at different points in their careers from various lines of work. In an industry dominated by men, women continue to face multiple barriers to entry. This podcast wants to change that.
