WIFT Israel Panel @Cannes Filmfestival 2023: Between Ageism & Quality

WIFT Israel Panel: Between Ageism & Quality

Ageism is prevailing. The shorter „lifespan“ of women in decision-making positions almost in all areas of the film industry systematically discriminates against female production, erasing it from the canon. As a result, each generation has to reinvent itself.

So what initiatives, practical, and concrete steps should we take to keep or bring back the industry women at 40+?

Ms. Victoria Thomas, producer/course director, M.A. international film business, London Film School, will moderate the panel.
