WOMEN IN FILM

Auckland City Harbour News - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

SAE Auck­land is holding its first fe­male-only film mak­ing work­shop, ChicFlix, at its Auck­land cam­pus on Satur­day 16 Septem­ber ex­plor­ing why there are not more women in film. The aim of the one-day work­shop is to em­power women to feel that film­mak­ing is a vi­able ca­reer op­tion for them. In New Zealand women directors make up only 14 per cent of fund­ing applications re­ceived by the New Zealand Film Com­mis­sion. ChicFlix is part of the SAEmis­sion to break stereo­types and ad­dress gen­der im­bal­ance in the au­dio and film in­dus­tries. For more in­for­ma­tion visit http:/ /auck­land.sae.edu on­line.
