In August 2019 Interarts published the document “The role of Women in the South-Med audiovisual sector: A collection of evidences” as an output of SouthMed WiA, a project implemented by a consortium of European and southern Mediterranean organisations led by Interarts, and co-funded by the European Union under the framework of the Med Film regional program.

The document provides an overview of the role and image of women in the film industry and audiovisual sector in southern Mediterranean countries. The main objective is to raise awareness, both in the audio-visual sector and in society as a whole, as to the importance of gender equality.

We recommend this document to all those interested in culture as a tool for building a collective social narrative, and as an effective driver of values related to social inclusion, cultural diversity and innovation.
