INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S FILM FESTIVAL NETWORK: GET NETWORKED UP!

We recently attended the International Women’s Film Festival Network event Get NetWorked Up, a discussion on women in the film business and how networks support their activities on the occasion of the 65th Berlin International Film Festival.

The event included a talk by Anna Serner, CEO of the Swedish Film Institute, on how Sweden is working to increase the number of films by women getting funded thanks to groundbreaking gender equality policies; a short video by Jasmila Zbanič driving home the message that “Women Make Great Films”; a panel with Tamara Dawit (Film Fatales), Esther Gronenborn (Pro Quote Regie), Beryl Richards (Vice Chair, Directors UK) and Kate Brown (EWA – European Women’s Audiovisual Network), and moderated by Melissa Silverstein (Athena Film Festival / Women and Hollywood).

Amma Asante, director of Belle, closed the event with an inspiring speech.
