Women In Motion podcast

For the fifth edition of Women In Motion, Kering has launched a podcast which offers a platform for women working across the film industry: film directors, producers, casting directors, renowned film production and distribution company directors as well as female film critics. From season to season, they talk us through their journeys, experiences their views on cinema and more generally, on the status of women in society.

In 2015, Kering, an official partner of the Festival de Cannes, launched the Women In Motion program with a twofold ambition: promoting gender equality and shining a light on women’s contribution to cinema by giving them a platform for expression.


To celebrate the program’s fifth edition, Kering launched the Women In Motion podcast. Each episode, lasting around twenty minutes, is produced and narrated by journalist and producer, Geraldine Sarratia. The series looks back on the interviewed personalities, their careers and their convictions: how did they become actresses, producers and filmmakers? What difficulties did they face? Who were their role models and what inspired them? Do they believe in a long-lasting change of mindsets? Do they define themselves as feminist?




“ In five years, Women In Motion has become a powerful platform for women in cinema, shining a light on their immense talent, and providing tangible support to the young female filmmakers who offer us their view on the world. ”

François-Henri Pinault
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Kering



The episodes are available on Apple podcasts, Soundcloud, Spotify and Deezer.
