Girls on Film – Live Podcast Recording at HOME

Tom Grieve, Cinema Editor

Girls on Film – Live Podcast Recording at HOME Manchester, Manchester 27 February 2019 Tickets from £5 — Book now

Scheduled as part of HOME’s yearlong Celebrating Women in Global Cinema initiative, the all-female film review podcast Girls On Film will deliver a series of live podcasts throughout 2019. The podcast, initiated by film journalist and broadcaster Anna Smith (a regular forBBC News, Sky News, BBC Radio, Metro, The Guardian, Sight & Sound and more), aims to look at film from a female perspective, engaging with new releases, relevant film-world debates, as well as discussions surrounding diversity and representation in criticism and beyond.

With the #MeToo movement hitting headlines, a lack of awards recognition for female talent, and a gender pay gap to reckon with, it’s as important as ever that women’s voices are amplified. So, it’s heartening to see that in addition to celebrating production talent, HOME are partnering with female critics as a part of Celebrating Women in Global Cinema. This first live event sees Smith joined by guests, Miranda Sawyer and Francine Stock for lively and intelligent debate, followed by a Q&A with the audience.
