A BRIGHTER LENS is a podcast created and hosted by Jennifer Zahlit and Larkin Bell that aims to spotlight women, trans, and non-binary folk in film through thoughtful discussion. By holding a space for underrepresented creators to share their knowledge, experience, and creative inspiration, we hope to make the process of filmmaking more accessible and cultivate a community dedicated to collaboration and support in the film industry.

Interviews include dozens of directors, writers, showrunners, casting directors, and creatives in front of and behind the camera.

Lynn Shelton (YOUR SISTER'S SISTER), Nisha Ganatra (LATE NIGHT),

Tanya Saracho (VIDA), Alma Har’el (HONEY BOY), Amy Adrion (HALF THE PICTURE),
