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.
