(06-10-2020) Professor Sofie Van Bauwel will give a talk on gender and the film industry at Filmfest Ghent 2020 on 16 October.

On 16 October 2020, Film Fest Gent completely immerses itself in the hard truths surrounding gender and cultural diversity in the film sector. Together with WIFTM Belgium (Women in Film, Television & Media Belgium), Wanda Collective, Represent and the Union of Directors, the film festival will focus on gender and cultural diversity in the film and media landscape.

Professor Sofie Van Bauwel will provide a state of the art by examining the absence of women at important film awards, as well as their limited presence in influential positions in the sector.
