The year 2022 will have the presence of the V edition of the Women’s Film Festival which is held from October 25 to November 6, to make a meticulous selection of the best filmmaker.
Recently a report called “FIACINE Women Ibero-America Annual Study 2021” by the Ibero-American Federation of Academies of Cinematographic Arts and Sciences revealed the participation of women within the Academies of Art and Cinematographic Sciences of the region. The data collected indicate that in 13 countries there were 7,636 women associated by specialty. The findings presented by the research show that women represent 30.8% of senior management positions (presidency) and only in some countries, such as Mexico, Guatemala, Brazil, and Paraguay.
The study showed that only 19% of women were associate directors in the Ibero-American Film Academies. In addition, only 34% of women are producers, and only 23% of women, are screenwriters. Even, 45.8% of women play or act in a leading role. The report concluded that costume design is the specialty with the highest percentage in which women participate 60.9%. Just like makeup with 50%.
On the other hand, the analysis highlights a group of women who are leaders in their country for their talent, effort, and dedication. These women are Albertina Carri, screenwriter and filmmaker from Argentina; Juliana Sakae, day laborer and documentary filmmaker from Brazil; Karin Cuyul, Director of Chile; Andrea Castañeda, the makeup artist from Colombia; Samia Maldonado, Executive Director of Ecuador; Virginia Yagüe, screenwriter and producer from Spain; Carla Molina, director of Guatemala; Astrid Rondero, screenwriter and producer from Mexico; Gabriela Sabaté, the producer from Paraguay and Claudia Lepage, the producer from Venezuela.
