Berlinale Set to Sign Gender Parity Pledge

Berlinale has announced that it will sign up to to the 5050×2020 Gender Parity Pledge, making it the latest international film festival to commit to doing so. Festival chief Dieter Kosslick will sign the pledge on Saturday 9 February (2019) at a gathering sponsored by our sister chapter, Women in Film and Television Germany.

The day before the Pledge signing, there will also be a launch event for 10% for 50/50, a new European financial incentive programme for gender-equal productions, and for the Alliance of Women’s Networks, a new European umbrella organization for groups advocating gender equality in the film industry.

The 5050×2020 Gender Parity Pledge was first launched in Cannes last year and has since been adopted by a number of international festivals, including Venice, IDFA, TIFF, and Annecy.
