Celebrate Women’s History Month with these 10 women-made films

Why women-made travel films and documentaries are so crucial to the travel media industry is perhaps so indisputable that the conversation feels somewhat played out. But unfortunately, the number of female producers, directors, and filmmakers pales in comparison to their male counterparts.
