INDUSTRY: How to Write Women Post-#MeToo

This event has ended.

14:00 Fri 18 Jan 2019

The Horse Hospital

This event looks to take stock of the #MeToo movement and the potential it has to effect change. This will be a space where women can discuss the pitfalls of current female representation, and whether heightened consciousness of sexism within the industry will bleed it’s way into representation on-screen. We’ll strive to work together to realise practical solutions to bolster women’s on-screen presence.

Pay what you can, suggested donation £5 but nobody turned away for lack of funds.

PANELLISTS: Olivia Hetreed (Writers’ Guild of Great Britain), Laura Kirwan-Ashman (Filmmaker), Alice Guilluy (London Film Academy), Nadia Latif (Filmmaker, Young Vic Associate Director), Claudia Yusef (Head of Development, BBC Films)

HAPPY HOUR: Join us for a complimentary drink 5.30-6.30pm, courtesy of gal-dem, for casual, creative networking to continue post-panel. Share ideas and probe advice from the industry pros without hierarchy, leaving with fresh new contacts and energy renewed!
