MAP OF MEASURES PER COUNTRY
The Lab’s European dimension means being open to what’s being done around us in Europe. What works and what doesn’t. When a policy works in one country and has the effect of shaking up the position of women in cinema, that doesn’t mean it will work in another, but at least it can be a source of inspiration… and persuasion. This map is therefore, like our study, an inventory of the current situation, and a collection of best practices on a European scale.
To carry out our qualitative study, we sent a list of questions concerning the place of women in cinema, available statistics and measures in place to 38 European countries. We received 32 replies, and for the other 6 we found information on the websites of national film institutions. The measures and policies implemented country by country in the map below form a synthesis of all the actions put in place: you’ll find the details in our 2022 study on the place of women directors in Europe.
All the figures presented in the interactive map below are those of our partner, the European Audiovisual Observatory (EAO), and represent an average over 2017-2021.
This color-coded ranking is intended to give an idea of how far different countries have come towards greater parity in their film industries, and in no way to rank one country against another.
