Tools for Gender Equality in the Swiss Film Industry

Many people and institutions of the Swiss film industry have expressed their will to support measures to have more women participate in writing, realizing and producing films and audiovisual works in Switzerland. How could this goal be achieved? In January 2016, FOCAL invited seven experts from Switzerland and abroad to reflect on the situation in Switzerland. Funding institutions and associations were invited to give feedback. This paper presents the findings of this think tank, as an answer to this question:

What are the specific tools that can be implemented in order to move forward towards gender equality in the Swiss film industry?
