Who Is She: A Bechdel Test Fest podcast relaunch
Who Is She? A Bechdel Test Fest Podcast explores the legacy of an extraordinary woman in film and how she has changed the landscape of cinema for the better.
Bechdel Test Fest – the ongoing celebration of positive representation for women and non-binary people in film – is thrilled to welcome the Birds of Prey and Dead Pigs filmmaker to their revamped podcast series.
Having previously welcomed esteemed speakers such as Josephine Decker (Shirley, Madeline’s Madeline), Joanna Hogg (The Souvenir, The Eternal Daughter) and Channing Godfrey Peoples (Miss Juneteenth) onto the podcast, Who Is She? kicks off its 2021 series with a new look and an in-depth conversation with rapidly rising filmmaker Cathy Yan.
Who Is She? spotlights and celebrates pioneering women in film. For each episode, film critics Beth Webb, Corrina Antrobus, Steph Watts and Caitlin Quinlan of Bechdel Test Fest speak with a special guest, and discuss why their work should be on your radar.
Who Is She? host Beth Webb says: “Having spent the best part of seven years hosting screenings and events that champion female and non-binary filmmakers across the UK, it’s been a joy to channel BTF’s mission into an accompanying podcast. Whether you’re a devout film fan, curious about a new filmmaker or a new viewer looking to broaden your horizons, we’ve got you covered.”
