Episode notes

Will James Bond ever be a woman? Non binary? A person of colour? The producer of the Bond series reveals all in the 100th episode of Girls On Film, an industry special in partnership with No Time to Die. Powerhouse Barbara Broccoli joins Anna to discuss her work on the franchise, talking about the importance of cinema and community, the exciting roles for women in No Time to Die and Barbara’s love of Daniel Craig as a Bond who shows emotional vulnerability. Barbara also explains why she thinks women make particularly excellent producers, the structures that Eon Productions have in place to support women, and the advances in the industry that have come about as a result of Time's Up. Following Barbara’s amazing insights, Anna sits in the guest chair for the first time and is interviewed by the super Sally Phillips and Ronni Ancona. Anna talks about the shifts she has seen in the film criticism world both over her career and Girls On Film’s lifetime and reveals a very special announcement! Sally and Ronni also give an overview of what they have been working on and how the last couple of years have influenced their bravery with screenwriting. Stay tuned for episode 101.
