Cinemagic On The Pulse: Girls On Film Live
Cinemagic's On The Pulse Short Film Festival presents a special live edition of the feminist film podcast Girls on Film
The successful female-focused podcast Girls On Film hosted by film critic Anna Smith (Deadline, The Guardian, BBC News, Time Out London) returns for a third live recording on stage at Cinemagic’s ‘On The Pulse’ short film festival.
This year, Anna Smith is joined by a panel including actress Sophia Myles, best known for Doctor Who, Spooks, Transformers: Age of Extinction, and Outlander, as well as writers and performers Sally Phillips and Ronni Ancona, who formed the independent production company Captain Dolly.
Girls On Film has amassed a loyal following since it was founded in 2018, welcoming guests including Carey Mulligan, Amma Asante and Gillian Anderson among a host of other notable actors, directors, and critics. In 2022, Girls On Film was nominated for Best Live Podcast at the British Podcast Awards, and the same year, increased its reach through the Girls On Film Awards rewarding “excellence in the field of feminism, inclusion and diversity, female representation, and the female gaze”.
The Girls On Film live edition at Cinemagic 2023 will once again feature fresh perspectives, insightful analysis and a chance for questions from the audience.
Sally Phillips is one of Britain’s best known comic talents with twenty-five years of credits in film and television including the Bridget Jones trilogy, Veep, I’m Alan Partridge, Green Wing, Taskmaster and Miranda. She co-created the double Emmy Award winning Smack the Pony and wrote The Decoy Bride. She has also won awards for screenwriting and documentary making and is a passionate disability advocate.
