The Female Gaze Part II image

There has been a concerted effort industry-wide to include women in power positions, both on the executive side and on the creative side.

Who are the women forging the path for female filmmakers, showrunners, producers and directors? Now that these first important steps have been taken, what does the future hold? And what can we ALL learn from their extraordinary journey?

In this session, delegates will:

  • Meet the British women who are forging the path for others, and the challenges that target women specifically in the British industry.
  • Benefit from the knowledge of creatives and executives who battle sexism and misogyny every day.
  • Develop strategies to help alleviate the problem on an individual and systemic level.

Screenwriting and filmmaking is a community, a culture all its own, and as such it suffers from many of the same flaws and challenges as any other culture. And as members of that culture, it behooves all of us to address those problems.

Continue this journey by attending this session and by getting involved in the conversation that involves ALL of us regardless of gender.
