Episode 027: Rowan Woods

This week I spoke to Rowan Woods who has jammed so much into her career it’s actually pretty staggering and is possibly one of the loveliest people I’ve ever met.


Rowan is currently the Film Programme Manager for the British Council where she finds and screens new UK features to international film festival selectors, as well as being the Industry Programmer for this year’s London Film Festival. Previously she was a Development Executive as BBC Films, so we chat about working her way up to that role, taking strategic career leaps, staying healthy at film festivals and being a friend to younger women in the industry.


It’s no surprise that several people have requested that Rowan be a guest on the podcast, so I’m very happy to finally be making that happen.
