The campaign ‘50/50 by 2020’ was launched by the Swedish Film Institute at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016. Highlighting the still blatant underrepresentation of women in front and beyond the cameras, the 5050×2020 target offered a clear horizon for actions and mobilised industry stakeholders in many European countries and beyond.

As the year 2020 draws to a close, and amid an unprecedented world crisis that dramatically impacts the audiovisual industry, how far have we progressed in the field of gender equality and what are the perspectives for actions? Are equality and non-discrimination still high enough on the agendas? Do we need new targets?

This online event aims at taking stock of the situation on the ground through the testimonies of film & tv production professionals, and then at discussing future commitments and strategies with EU policymakers and key sector stakeholders.

Ms. Graça Fonseca, Minister of Culture of Portugal will be opening the event. It is co-organised by EWA network (European Women’s Audiovisual Network) and EURO-MEI (UNI Europa – Media, Entertainment & Arts) in partnership with EFAD (European Film Agency Directors Association) and Cineuropa.

It will be held on zoom on Friday 11 December from 11:00 till 13:00.
Simultaneous translation in English, French and Spanish will be available.
It is a public meeting, accessible upon registration only.
