Venice Film Fest 2019: Women Representation

Women in Venice Fest

This year we received more than 1,800 films. Only 23 percent of the films submitted were directed by women.

In the short film competition, 50 percent of the film directors are women.

On VR, the women are the majority, compared to the men. More than 60 percent of VR submissions were directed by women.

It means that in the new generation there are more female directors than in the old days. This is evident, and it’s very promising for the future.
