137 Claire Duffy | Discovering the History of Women in Film

Listen Now!

Here’s the Recap:

Claire Duffy has worked as a screenwriter for over a decade and has loved films ever since she was a child. Her passion in movies led her to attend drama school and study directing. Later in life she worked in theatre in London and then attended film school in Vancouver. Now she is pursuing a new form of expression – podcasting. Her podcast, Women of Hollywood Land explores women in films from the 1910 and 1920’s and Claire couldn’t be more perfect for this new role.

I was fortuitous enough to find her via Twitter and I’m excited to share her story and what you can expect to hear on Women of Hollywood Land.
