January 2020 was packed with gender celebrations at Solothurn Film Festival
Political, satirical, playful or sensitive - young Swiss women make their films fearless and uncompromising.
On November 8, 2019, SWAN organized the workshop «How to achieve gender equality in filmmaking» during the Industry Lab at Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur, in partnership with the festival
SWAN was excited to partner again with Zurich Film Festival and for the first time with SVFJ - ASJC - ASGC to host a panel on film criticism
In line with this year's focus on “Diversity” and in view of the currently explosive topic, we are presenting a panel in partnership with Gässli Film Festival & SWAN (Swiss Women's Audiovisual Network).
SWAN teamed up with ARF/FDS to organize a roundtable on the aftermath of the #metoo movement
Where are the women apart from costume and script? Why does it matter? Are gender equal film sets different? Is your production gender equal? Do you have a diverse crew?
SWAN was invited to take part in and help put together a special panel organised by the Festival on March 8th in front of a panel of ECAL students.
On January 30, 2019, SWAN and Solothurn Film Festival signed the pledge for parity and diversity. This event was followed by a party at the Night of Nominations
