The Female Filmmaker Friday podcast is back! If you missed it, you can listen to the inaugural episode on Jane Campion here. This week Lady P. from Flixwise joins me to talk about the one and only Ida Lupino!

I’m excited to announce that the Female Filmmaker Friday podcast has joined the Battleship Pretension fleet of podcasts. Check out the others here. Also don’t forget you can subscribe (and rate!) in iTunes.

I’ll be traveling for the next few weeks, so look for Episode 3 sometime in October, when I’ll be joined by Monica Castillo to talk about Cuban filmmaker Sara Gómez.
