Moderated by Emily Yoshida, Film Critic at Vulture
In the ongoing fight to equalize gender dynamics and eliminate discrimination in our male-dominated culture, the importance of media representation can’t be overstated. It is up to us as filmmakers to make responsible and thoughtful decisions about how our female characters are presented on screen.
In this panel, Sarah Finn, the powerhouse casting director behind Black Panther and The Avengers franchise, Jameela Jamil, an actress, activist, and the founder of the viral ‘I Weigh” campaign, Ry Russo-Young, the director of Nobody Walks, Before I Fall, and the upcoming The Sun is Also a Star, Janet Mock, an American writer, director, TV host, and transgender rights activist, Negin Salmasi, former Pascal Pictures executive currently overseeing the US-based operations of See-Saw Films and Cleopatra Coleman, an Australian actress and writer best known for her roles in Step Up Revolution, The Last Man On Earth and the sci-fi thriller Hover in which she starred, wrote and produced. They will lead a conversation around the ways women are often portrayed, and explore methods we can use to dismantle traditional female stereotypes, and discuss new norms that empower female viewers.
