Lynne Fernie

Season 1 Episode 8: The Female Gaze

Some refer to her as the OG of programming and filmmaking, but to many in the filmmaking community she’s known as Lynne Fernie – programmer, filmmaker, artist, cat lover and song writer. She joins us this episode to continue our conversation about women in film.
