Femme Palette Networking: Women in Film

  • Animika Hub 27 Křižíkova Hlavní město Praha, 186 00 Czech Republic (map)

For the February networking event we have partnered with Girls in Film, a global network of female filmmakers, to share knowledge and insights into one of the most creative industries out there.

The event will be open with a short presentation by the head of Girls in Film in Prague Julie Zackova. After that there will be a panel talk led by two guest speakers: an award-winning Czech film producer Pavla Kubečková and a Prague-based American commercial director Jay Walker.

We will discuss various opportunities the film industry offers to female creatives and how to succeed as a woman in this (still) largely male-dominated industry. We will talk about the role of women in the industry and the great contributions female filmmakers made over the past decades. We will also discuss where to look for funding and sponsorships for your productions and how to get noticed on the highly saturated market. All of this will be accompanied by short samples of work from our guest speakers.

There will be a Q&A session after the panel talk and plenty of networking opportunities to connect and mingle. This topic might seem a bit niche, but visual content is playing a major part in our lives these days, from Netflix shows to music videos, Instagram stories, marketing and advertising. So even if you don’t know anything about filmmaking, come and learn from all the great women, broaden your horizons and get inspired on creative ideas. This is also a great opportunity to meet women outside your network and learn something new.
