DIRECTORS & SCREENWRITERS
Wednesday, June 27
10:00 am - 11:30 aM
Gerrard Room, Ground Floor
33 GERRARD ST. WEST
(VIP FESTIVAL DELEGATES AND INDUSTRY ONLY)
Join us for the Director Round Table Discussion, a Female Eye signature series.
FeFF delegates (producers, screenwriters, directors) including representatives from the public funding sector and other industry stakeholders, will discuss the shifts that have taken place in our industry in the wake of #MeToo, #Timesup and other movements that address gender inequity and gross abuse in the entertainment industry. We aim to share networking and relationship-building strategies as a means of discussing ways to seize this moment in order to create and solidify new business opportunities and establish practices that will endure and deter the abuse of power as we move forward.
The Directors’ Round Table aims to develop industry feedback on key issues facing women in screen-based media.
Moderated by Leslie Ann Coles, Founder & Executive Director, FeFF and Carol Whiteman President & CEO, Creative Women Workshops Association (CWWA) & Producer Women In the Director's Chair (WIDC)
