Place of Female Directors in Europe

2023 Study on the Place of Female Directors in Europe

Le Lab Femmes de Cinéma, a think-tank initiated by the Les Arcs Film Festival launched its 2023 study. On average in Europe, only one of four directors is a woman. Women in cinema continue to be paid less, subsidized less and programmed less, and female characters are still often stereotyped. Measures to fight gender stereotypes, develop career and parenthood support and other findings from policies across Europe, including current statistics from 37 European countries can be found in the eighth update of the annual survey.
