Museum Moments

“Museum Moments with CWIF” is a program inspired by the “Heritage Minutes” produced by Heritage Canada.

Museum Moments are short podcasts that seek to tell the stories of discrete moments in the lives of Marie Dressler, Mary Pickford, and Norma Shearer, as well as a variety of other topics that fit within the scope of Canadian women in film, early Hollywood, and gender equality within the film industry.

The idea of these Moments is to quickly introduce visitors to stories beyond the walls of the Canadian Women In Film Museum, in a short-form, easily digestible podcast format.
