Anna Serner is the CEO of the Swedish Film Institute. Her tenure at the Swedish Film Institute is distinguished by her work for gender equality. She has been a driving force behind several initiatives such as ”50/50 by 2020” at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, the “50/50 by 2020 – Global Reach” seminar at the 2017 Cannes Film Market, and in 2018, with support from the Cannes Film Festival, the Swedish Film Institute arranged ”Take Two: Next moves for #MeToo”. With a total of five Ministers of Culture from different countries attending, the event marked a meaningful shift at an international level for equality in the film industry. Anna Serner has appeared as a panellist and keynote speaker at several international film festivals, including Gothenburg, Cannes, Berlin, Toronto and EFA (European Film Awards), as well as the World Forum for Democracy in Strasbourg (2018) and The Big Screen Symposium in Auckland, NZ (2018).
