Where are the Women? Gender equality in Swiss film productions

07 avril 2019 16h00 – 18h00, Village du Réel, Rue des Marchandises, 1260 Nyon

SSFV and SWAN have partnered to organize a round table discussion focused on the position and representation of women on-set and postproduction crews.

On April 7, 2019, the event took place at Visions du Réel to outline the present and future landscape of gender equality advances in Swiss audiovisual productions, drawing from data, studies as well as personal experiences. Through central issues, such as hiring opportunities, wage inequality and work environment, this round table has tried to raise awareness and foster both reflection and debate within the branche regarding this topic in order to come up with new solutions to reach equality.

Moderator: Screenwriter and SWAN co-president Stéphane Mitchell

Speakers: Producer Joëlle Bertossa, sound engineer and boom operator Marianne Roussy, Federal Office of Culture’s Head of diversity and distribution in the Film Department Jela Skerlak





SWAN would like to thank its partner SSFV and its supporter Visions du Réel without whom this event could not have been possible.
