REDEFINING WOMEN REPRESENTATIONS ON SCREEN

PANELISTS: SANAA LATHAN, JAMEELA JAMIL, SARAH FINN & MORE TBA

Moderated by Guest TBA

In the ongoing fight to equalize gender dynamics and eliminate gender discrimination in our male-dominated culture, the importance of media representation can’t be overstated. It is up to us as filmmakers to make responsible and thoughtful decisions about how our female characters are presented onscreen. In this panel, powerful women from all aspects of the film industry come together to analyze the ways women are often portrayed, and to come up with proactive methods we can use to dismantle traditional female stereotypes, and to establish new norms that empower female viewers.
 
Sarah Finn is a powerhouse casting director who is known for her groundbreaking work on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She's responsible for casting over 100 films including Black PantherThe Avengers, and the upcoming Captain Marvel. Jameela Jamil is an actress in NBC's The Good Place and an outspoken advocate for change in the fashion and entertainment industries. She recently launched a campaign against unrealistic expectations and representations of women's bodies in the media called "I Weigh", where women are encouraged to measure their achievements and experiences rather than their pounds or kilograms.
