Fishnet Cinema was created by writer, comedienne and intersectional feminist Jourdain Searles. Jourdain serves as the editor and primary contributor. She wanted to create a media critique site written only by women and femmes, prioritizing marginalized voices. This sites aims to be inclusive of all female-identifying and femme individuals with a love for film, television, animation and other forms of media. Critique with a deep understanding of the way race, gender, sexuality and class informs the media we consume is highly favored.
Jourdain Searles is also the host of The Shady Lady Podcast and co-host of Bad Romance Podcast which patrons are able to support jointly with Fishnet Cinema through Patreon.
