Increase the gender equality in Nordic film


The lack of gender equality in the Nordic film industry persists. Despite ambitious efforts to the contrary, films made by men continue to dominate both at the cinema and on TV.

This project aimed to look closer at the gender equality in the production of Swedish, Danish and Icelandic films. The results were presented and discussed in connection with seminars and outreach activities on gender equality in Nordic film.

The project also included a film festival in Stockholm 2–5 March 2017, arranged to show some of the films directed and produced by women that never reach the general public.
