TriStar President Hannah Minghella says it is a ‘prime focus’ to bring in more women

President of Sony Pictures-owned TriStar Pictures, Hannah Minghella says it is a ‘prime focus’ of hers to bring more women into the studio.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the daughter of the Oscar-winning director Anthony Minghella said:

“We still have a long way to go, but I do for the first time see actual change. I sit on the board of Women in Film and have been a part of the ReFrame initiative. And the whole objective has been not just to turn up the dial on the level of conversation but to find very pragmatic ways to engage the studios in supporting everybody’s interest in creating more gender equity. I am not going to say we’re anywhere near where we need to be. But I certainly don’t feel like the lone voice at the studio championing this. It is a prime focus of mine to bring more women into the studio.”

Asked about whether she thinks the success of Wonder Woman might open doors, she answered “I would hope so. I had executive envy when I saw that movie.”
