Where are the women (apart from costume and script)? Why does it matter? Does gender parity make a difference to a film set? Does your production support gender equality? Do you have a diverse crew?

SSFV (Swiss Syndicate for Film and Video) and SWAN (Swiss Women’s Audiovisual Network) have partnered to organise a roundtable discussion focused on the position and representation of women in technical crews (sets and post-production). Over one hour, a roundtable with professional speakers from within the Swiss Audiovisual Industry will outline the present and future landscape of gender equality advances in Swiss audiovisual productions, drawing upon data and studies as well as personal experiences.

Through central issues, such as hiring opportunities, wage inequality and the work environment, this roundtable wishes to raise awareness and foster both reflection and debate on this topic within the industry, in order to come up with new solutions to achieve equality. The discussion will be followed by a Q&A session with the public.

In collaboration with SSFV & SWAN.
