Female Power in Documentaries East/West
Consider the global status of a woman in 2020. Documentaries are a special window into the experiences of women in all fields of activity. Documentary film, compared with feature filmmaking, has historically provided a more welcoming and accessible environment for female filmmakers. Although the number of female documentary filmmakers is constantly growing, they are still underrepresented in the industry. In order to achieve dramatic changes in this regard, we have invited key members of the European documentary scene to share their experiences. Together, we would like to talk about possible changes and ways to encourage more women to undertake powerful roles in the field of documentary filmmaking.
