It's time to rewrite the script for gender parity in filmmaking! 

From the director's chair to the editing room, women are breaking barriers and reshaping the narrative of the industry. A recent study from the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film indicates that in 2023 at major american film festivals: The ratio of narrative films directed exclusively by women and men, respectively, is now seven to 10, up from six to 10 a year ago. Across key crew positions (directors, writers, producers, executive producers, editors and cinematographers), women worked more in docs (44 percent) than in narrative features (35 percent). Movies directed by women were more likely to also have women in other behind-the-scenes roles (30 percent of cinematographers and 48 percent of editors on woman-helmed films, as opposed to 12 percent and 22 percent, respectively, on pictures directed by men). #GenderParity #InclusionInFilm #RewriteTheScript #JoinPano #DiversityinFilm
