50/50 A Roadmap for the Future

Co-hosted by the Swedish Film Institute and featuring its CEO, Anna Serner, the panel will explore the road ahead for the 50/50 by 2020-movement. From its beginnings as a call to action for gender parity in the funding schemes of films in Sweden, it has grown to become a global movement which embraces the entire filmic eco-system, working towards the increased representation and structural inclusion of other equity-seeking groups.

Featuring a keynote from Anna Serner on the origins of the movement, the conversation will highlight the experiences and insights of key change-makers who have created innovative and inclusive initiatives, with a view to finding its coordinates for the future.
