The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) will host “WOMEN BREAKING BARRIERS: An Industry Shift?” panel discussion at the 2021 Virtual Sundance Film Festival.
After a tumultuous year of halted and delayed production, worldwide discussions about equality, LGBTQ+ rights, Black Lives Matter protests and an awakening to anti-racist and non-discriminating policies, the panel will explore if we are seeing a shift in the film industry in terms of female creatives in the field. The HFPA will pose this question to the inclusive group of panelists and discuss the future of women in the film and music business post pandemic.
The HFPA is a supporter of The Sundance Institute‘s Feature Film Program and the Women at Sundance Initiative offering creative development opportunities for women behind the camera. Since 2018 The Sundance Institute has hosted the HFPA Women’s Panel at the Sundance Film Festival as a forum to explore and foster the emerging artistic diversity.
