How can Europe ensure better respect of diversity and inclusion in its cinema, television, and video on demand industries? A new report, now available for free from the European Audiovisual Observatory, addresses these concerns.
There has long been a sharp awareness of equality and non-discrimination based on gender, origin, or disabilities included in European media legislation. But more recent social changes, in particular concerning the position of women in the workplace and the #blacklivesmatter development have meant that diversity and inclusion have more recently come into the spotlight.
What of the audiovisual industries in Europe? How are we ensuring better D&I in the creative processes of content production? And what about our on-screen representation of society in films, series and other audiovisual content?
This new report examines these questions on the basis of a workshop which took place online in December 2020.
The new report deals with key diversity and inclusion issues in the European audiovisual landscape such as: international and European measures currently in place, national measures created and enforced by national regulatory authorities, public funding criteria which include diversity and inclusion considerations, the industry toolboxes for monitoring diversity and inclusion and data collection, campaigns, events and networks and attempts to answer the question: Where do we go from here?
