Celluloid Junkie's Top 50 Women In Global Cinema - 2018
March 8th 2018
Our Founder, Claire Beswick, has been recognised by Celluloid Junkie as one of the 50 Women in Global Cinema in 2018.
"In its third year of the top women in global cinema list we have tried to widen both the pool of those we consider for this recognition, as well as the committee that arrived at these names. We are aware that with the #MeToo, Time’s Up and 50-50 by 2020 campaigns there is a more intense focus than ever at the role and treatment of women in the media industry. We have seen some genuine change in the cinema business, but still more needs to be done.
As outlined by our Committee Chair Dana Moutis in her article yesterday, arriving at the final list was no easy task and we realise that there are several talented women who didn’t make the list this year. There are ones we may have overlooked and some asked their name not to be included. That said, we were at the same time encouraged by women who nominated themselves! This is a business driven by female consumers! That’s why female voices need to be heard more."
