The women of Greek cinema speak up

Greek film portal Flix.gr has decided to give the floor to 36 women involved in the Greek film industry so that they can talk about their experience in the cinematic workplace. Encompassing two generations of professionals ranging from directors, producers and actresses to cinematographers, composers and designers, the video aims to shed light on the importance of being a woman in Greek cinema.

Raising the topics of sexism, the problems that women face with colleagues and the representation of female characters, the participants intend to answer all of the key questions that plague the film industry worldwide, and not only locally. Ideally, this video will draw attention to the key issues and will hopefully become a starting point for further dialogue that will not be limited to the professional environment.
