Is art an abbreviation of Arthur?


Is equality a factor for success for a Nordic film industry in crisis? What does the resistance look like and what are the challenges for a more equal Nordic film industry? How do we implement the most advantageous of changes? What happens if women don’t make movies? The five different WIFT chapters in the Nordic countries have positioned themselves as important agents of change that apply a variety of strategies to achieve equality in the film industry. With a strong line-up of women directors in the competition category of this year’s Nordisk Panorama we ask women filmmakers about their experiences and conditions working in an industry dominated by men.

Women in Film & television International (WIFTI) is a global network striving to increase visibility and support for women working with film, TV and other media, present in 40 countries with more than 10 000 members.
