A panel of world-class women documentary directors come together online to talk about their BAFTA long-listed films, making it in non-fiction and launching a doc in the midst of a pandemic. 

Bonni Cohen (Athlete A), Nadia Hallgren (Becoming), Kirsten Johnson (Dick Johnson is Dead), Nicole Newnham (Crip Camp) and Pippa Ehrlich (My Octopus Teacher) have all directed or co-directed Netflix films on the documentary long-list for the 2021 BAFTAs.

Join us to hear about the making of some very different, but utterly compelling films, and while we’re still a considerable way off gender parity in doc-directing, to talk about the challenges for women in the industry.

In partnership with Netflix.
