Making It: Women in Film – A podcast for women working and aspiring in the film and TV industry.

Hosted by Shania Bethune and Malin Evita, Making It: Women in Film is a weekly podcast (new episode every Friday) featuring introspective and honest conversations with women working from across all fields of the film and TV industry.

We wanted to create a space for women to get together and voice their stories and experiences, opinions and ideas; a space where no matter how much or how little you have done, your passion is encouraged and embraced.

The revolution for women in the film and TV industry is now.
