Alma Har'el on Free the Bid and supporting female directors “Most of the female filmmakers I know never get the same opportunities to prove themselves as men do,” says Alma Har’el. “When they do, they have to be more professional, more strategic, they usually get paid less and if they fail, they hardly [ever] get a second chance.”

Alma Har’el taught herself how to make films using a laptop and a cheap videocamera. She has since directed two feature films (Bombay Beach and LoveTrue) as well as ads for Stella Artois and Airbnb and music videos for Sigur Rós and Beirut.
