    This week we are chatting about cult comedy What We Do In The Shadows (2014) - starring, written and directed by Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement.


    Shot in a mockumentary style, it follows a group of vampire flatmates as they navigate mundane aspects of life in the modern world. Their attempts to pay rent, keeping up the chore wheel, trying to get into nightclubs and overcoming flatmate conflicts are hilariously disastrous.


    In this episode we discuss Taika’s journey as a filmmaker, how the film was funded and its rise from a struggling indie to a popular American series.


    What We Do In The Shadows is available to watch on Amazon Prime.


    Next week is our final episode of Series 3! Join us for a special episode on Fresh (2022) directed by Mimi Cave. We will joined by special guest, Daisy Edgar-Jones, who stars in the film alongside Sebastian Stan and Jonica I. Gibbs. Fresh is available to watch on Disney+.

One of the Best Podcasts

I rate this podcast 6 stars, its fun to listen to, authentic, humorous, educational and the hosts have a great camaraderie. Without the FFC I would have missed out on these excellent and enjoyable films. I can also share my film perspectives via the FFC email and instagram (including with my favorite actress/entrepreneur MW!) I look forward to every podcast just like GOT. So great, thanks for creating this.

Excellent Podcast

I listen to a lot of Podcasts about movie reviews and I'm always on the lookout for others to listen to. I started listening to FFC for a few reasons:

1) There aren't that many around that have three young female presenters (who have been involved in the media/film industry) so it's interesting to hear a different perspective.
2) I've been a fan on Maisie Williams and her work for a good while and love what she is doing to help others get into the industry
3) The team seem to have a great chemistry with each other and and it's a very relaxed atmosphere
4) When they have criticisms, they don't completely bash a movie (like some others do) but present these in a constructive way

This is a great and relaxing Podcast to listen to while sitting in front of the computer with the headphones in at work.
