Outreach and Engagement Lead

An executive summary from the non-profit film organization Women in View analyzes data tracking the amount of female writers, directors, cinematographers, showrunners and producers in Canadian TV and film. The summary also shows the amount women identifying as Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) in these roles.

The data taken from the report states 40% of film directors are women and only 10% of those directors are BIPOC women. It also states 61% of film productions were produced by women and 8.2% of those were BIPOC women.

The report breaks down further statistics about Indigenous women in film and how investment in women remains significantly lower than men.
