Anna Serner heads the Swedish Film Institute. This is a masterclass (a mistressclass?) in #gendermatters, where she describes how she's achieving gender equity at the institute. I love her careful analysis of the problems, the obstacles and the achievements. She's developed a brilliant model for every country where the taxpayer funds film.
Anna was filmed at the 'Women in Irish Film' Colloquium at Mary Immaculate College in Limerick, a few weeks ago. Yes, in Ireland, where #gendermatters too (and where the population is about the same as New Zealand's). The colloquium was organised by Dr. Susan Liddy of the college’s Department of Media and Communications and a member of the Equality Action Committee, with Lauren MacKenzie, Liz Gill and Marian Quinn, who together represented the Writers Guild of Ireland and the Screen Directors Guild of Ireland in discussions with the Irish Film Board’s Gender Equality Plan.
Many thanks to actress/writer/producer Maeve McGrath for this link.
