Event description
#jointheconversation: Women in Film - Talk & Networking Event

About this Event

Join us to look at the role of Women in Film, featuring successful female professionals in front of and behind the camera.

We will be discussing our speakers' individual journeys, successes and challenges, as well as addressing the broader notion of representation in film, such as:

  • range and availability of roles for women both in front of and behind the camera
  • challenges women face in the film industry and whether ground is being gained

Afterwards, join our Audience Q&A and use the opportunity to pick our experts’ brains and network with fellow filmmakers and artists.
