The Film Centre of Montenegro and the European Women’s Audiovisual Network are pleased to invite you to the panel discussion:

EMPOWER HER FILMS: Gender diversity in film in Montenegro, Moldova and Slovenia.

A conversation about tackling challenges and creating opportunities for female talent and female-driven filmmaking. Addressing questions like what it means to be a woman who wants to succeed in countries in transition (and not only) and with still quite patriarchal traditions and mentality, where  family violence, misogyny,  stereotypes are day-by-day challenges. How can film contribute to overcoming these problems and conditions? What are the best policies and practices/models with tangible impact/results?
