EWA (the European Women's Audiovisual Network) has launched a European campaign to build awareness around women directors.  

The statistics (when there are any) in Europe are dismal with women directing approximately 10% of all box office successes according to Francine Raveney the Executive Director of EWA.

The campaign is asking women directors to put together a 60 second clip about why they make movies.  Clips can be sent to: contact@ewawomen.com

Spanish director Isabel Coixet has taken a leadership position and is encouraging women to join with her in this campaign.

Here's some details about the work of EWA:

  • They encourage cross media and co-production projects to raise financing for women's projects throughout the audiovisual sector;
  • They promote cultural diversity across the board 
  • They are instigating new data monitoring and research and helped to encourage the European audiovisual observatory to monitor gender balance for best selling films 
  • They are training on how to pitch and present 
  • Will organise events which will bring together producers and directors with projects and decision makers;
  • Are working with film funds and are building bridges with politicians to ensure that gender equality is fully on the agenda
