For several years many studies have been undertaken concerning gender equality among directors in the European film industry. All arrive at the same conclusion that this is, for the time being, a mainly male-dominated profession and that it is time to find a way of making space for female film directors. We decided to focus on how the different countries reacted to this fact.

We examined the measures adopted by different national cinema institutions, which represent the official national vision in terms of addressing this problematic. In order to do this we contacted and questioned them as to the quantitative results that we had obtained, and then about the measures adopted (as well as the results of these measures), or what they were planning to do about the subject.
