Bad Feminists Making Films
Bad Feminists Making Films is a new show where hosts Maggie Lemere and Emily Hong talk to bad feminist filmmakers who are confronting and changing the male-dominated film industry. Their podcast features intimate conversations with feminist filmmakers about their filmmaking journeys, including cringe-worthy moments, sweet successes, and tips for navigating male-dominated spaces. Join us as we work towards creating community, building alternatives, and transforming the film industry.
Emily and Maggie kick off the podcast by dropping some bad feminist facts about the sad state of the filmmaking industry. Their guests Elena Guzman and Miasarah Lai talk about why feminism needs an asterisk, and how it has come to be a shorthand for knowing who you want to work with. Elena and Miasarah discuss the importance of feminist filmmaking as an anti-racist and anti-oppressive practice, and share some bad feminist moments they’ve had along the way.
