SWAN is and has been at the service of women* in the audiovisual industry for several years, establishing close relationships with meaningful players and partnerships with like minded organisations worldwide, becoming the national reference. Most importantly, SWAN has created the first ever Office for Equality & Diversity in the Swiss Audiovisual Industry as well as the Directory, the very first online inventory of women* working in the domain to grant them visibility.
Both projects have been created thanks to the support of the Federal Office of Gender Equality and Migros Culture Percentage. The Directory has received an additional essential support from Müller-Möhl Foundation.
Since 2016, SWAN has organised and participated in a number of keynotes and round tables to discuss and inform around different issues pertaining to gender equality and diversity in the audiovisual industry.
On December 4, 2021, Human Rights Film Festival Zurich will host the screening of Alison Kuhn's "The Case You", a documentary centered on sexualised violence in the film industry. The projection will be followed by a panel discussion on the topic.
