EPISODE 7: WOMEN FILMMAKERS / VOTE 100

The Cinema For All Podcast is a celebration of going to the cinema. In this seventh, full length episode Jaq and Abi talk about their love of women directors and their frustration at the lack of awards recognition for their favourites, especially in light of the recent BAFTA nominations. Jaq and Abi also chat about upcoming cinema releases Destroyer, Beautiful Boy and Vice.

In this episode, we also welcome our Cinema For All colleagues Deborah Parker and Oriana Franceschi to talk about our part in the nationwide Vote 100 celebrations, which mark 100 years since the start of women’s suffrage in the UK. They talk about the creation of a new archive film, Born a Rebel, a series of events held across the North of England to celebrate the film, and share with us their female heroes.

Deborah’s Nan, Doris, who she tells us a lovely story about in the episode.

The Cinema For All proud to be supported by the BFI, awarding funds from the National Lottery.
