Join us next week as we talk about feminism in Hollywood with film archivist Audrey Kupferberg. We’ll also sit down with a local film commissioner to talk about what it’s like to convince production companies to shoot in your city.

I’m your host Jackie Orchard. Until next week — Remember, the future is fearless.
