Ladima Foundation Women of Influence Zoom Panel: Overcoming Gatekeepers (tearing down the gates in the film industry)

LADIMA FOUNDATION ANNOUNCEMENT

Ladima Foundation Women of Influence Zoom Panel: Overcoming Gatekeepers (tearing down the gates in the film industry)

One of the issues that gets raised again and again for aspiring (and even professional) filmmakers, particularly those already disadvantaged or facing exclusion, such as women, is the topic of gatekeeping and lack of access and inclusion.

Gatekeeping and gatekeepers refer to a process where through actual obstructions to access, or the perception of obstruction to access, certain groups or individuals are excluded from accessing opportunities.

The panel will address the importance of recognizing both the actual and perceived barriers to entry, and the even more important need to address and redress these obstacles. The panel will speak to those who may inadvertently be acting as gatekeepers, and also to those who may have been faced gatekeepers in their professional journeys.

The discussion will include women from a diversity of backgrounds who now hold significant roles within some of the more recognized organisations in the industry.

Time: Dec 10, 2020 05:00 PM in West Central Africa
