HOSTED BY SWIFT – WOMEN FILMMAKERS IN NATURAL HISTORY
The presence of women in wildlife and natural history filmmaking is not a common occurrence globally. The hardships and economics of this sub-genre discourages women from participating within the various roles of cinematographers, directors, researchers and production coordinators. There is hope, with a few pioneering women breaking barriers and pursuing unique and inspirational stories about nature and conservation.
The panel will also feature organisations advancing the entrance of a new generation of female filmmakers as well as influential broadcasters who commission Wildlife and Natural History Programming.
The conversation will explore current opportunities, challenges, and barriers for women entering this aspect of the industry.
