Gender balance

The Danish Film Institute works in partnership with the industry to create initiatives that document and enhance gender parity in Danish film.

The Danish Film Institute's work for gender parity focuses on documenting and sharing knowledge, creating awareness of bias and promoting changes in practice.

Initiatives include regular surveys of Danish film to shed light on the gender distribution of grant applicants and recipients, behind-the-camera creatives, cast members and audiences. The aim is to illuminate the gender balance from many different angles and identify possible imbalances.

The data constitutes a foundation for a dialogue with film industry organisations. This dialogue is key, stressing the importance of a shared commitment regarding objectives and initiatives with the many stakeholders in the film industry.
