We are very proud and pleased with the outcome of last weeks WOMEN IN ANIMATION PANEL during the FMX 2019! The discussion hopefully threw some light onto the underdeveloped situation of women in the Animation and VFX Industry, where they are still a minor and underpaid. Annegret Richter, CEO of AG Animationsfilm, and a couple of other successful women want to build an Initiative inspired by the “Women in Animation in America”. First step is to get feedback in to actually tackle the right problems, so it is up to you now to help them get this great project rolling and they would love your support by filling out this survey!
A Women in Animation-Panel with some badass Ladybosses! Head over here for some female power going around!
What: “Focusing Female Firepower: The Path to Inclusivity”
Where: Meidinger Saal
Times are changing, with more and more women rightfully climbing the career ladder. Yet, the entertainment industry is still in the process of becoming truly inclusive. This issue makes it all the more important to keep discussing the challenges that female professionals are facing. FMX 2019 is proud to cooperate with Women in Animation for a panel - curated and moderated by Kim Adams (Co-Founder, Adventure Lab) -, which will feature four brilliant women. Andrea Miloro (Co-President, Blue Sky Studios), Trisha Gum (Filmmaker), Sharon Taylor (Group Chief Operating Officer, Animal Logic) and Imke Fehrmann (CEO, Hahn Film AG) will discuss the impact of marginalizing the female perspective in the entertainment industry and specific actions we can take as we change the tide.
Women let’s gather, let’s talk and discuss!
The AG ANIMATIONSFILM cordially invites all interested people for the event during the ITFS 2019 in Stuttgart. The Initiative is planned to encourage women in the Animation Industry, grow networks and establish the youth development in all sectors of Animation and VFX. All support for Women in Animation is very welcome so please come and join us!
