På måndag 1 mars startar första delen av den digitala Berlins filmfestival. Det är den delen av festivalen som vänder sig till filmmarknaden och press. Förutom att Nelly Rapp – monsteragent tävlar om Kristallbjörnen presenteras Gustav Lindh – årets Shooting Star – för bransch och press. Filminstitutet bidrar dessutom med fyra seminarier varav tre sker i samarbete med Scandinavian Films. Seminariet Who Counts? knyter an till den engelska versionen av senaste jämställdhetsrapporten.

Monday 1 March 14.00-15.00 (CET)
Who Counts? – a conversation about intersectionality in practice, with guests who are shaping the landscape of the film industry.

The conversation will highlight tools and best practices that the audience can incorporate into their businesses daily and strategically, focusing on strategies and methods for working towards equity and against discrimination in film and television.

Panelists:
Effie T. Brown, CEO, Gamechanger Films; producer, Dear White People, Real Women Have Curves 
Dr. Emilia Roig, Executive Director, Center for Intersectional Justice 
Matthijs Wouter Knol, Director of the European Film Academy; former Director of the European Film Market

The event marks the international launch of the Swedish Film Institute’s report Which Women?, which looks at the impact of ethnicity, race, age and gender, on working conditions for women of color in the Swedish film industry. The findings will be discussed by Anna Serner, CEO, The Swedish Filminstitute, and researcher Ylva Habel, Assistant Professor at Södertörn Högskola in Stockholm, Sweden.

The report “Which women?” is available for download here.

The event is free and open to the public. Accreditation or pre-registration not required.
