The project “SouthMed WiA, Towards Greater Gender Equality: Promoting the Role and Image of Women in the Southern Mediterranean Audio-visual Sector” has published a handbook which identifies and systematizes relevant information on programs and activities regarding gender and the audio-visual sector in the target countries of the project: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia. It is a useful tool with information on best practices, which may trigger the establishment of synergies and networking opportunities as well as on film industry institutions and opportunities with a direct or indirect link to gender. SouthMed WiA is co-funded by the European Union and implemented by a consortium led by Interarts (Spain) in partnership with the Higher School of Audio-visual and Cinema – ESAC (Tunisia), the Culture & Media Agency Europe – CUMEDIAE (Belgium), the Permanent Conference of the Mediterranean Audio-visual Operators – COPEAM (Italy) and the Screen Institute Beirut – SIB (Lebanon).
