Animation Magazine - - Frame- By- Frame -

Na­tional Film Board of Canada ex­panded its goals for gen­der par­ity by aim­ing to have women in half of all key cre­ative po­si­tions for an­i­mated, doc­u­men­tary and in­ter­ac­tive works in pro­duc­tion as of 2020.

The ini­tia­tive tar­gets edit­ing, cin­e­matog­ra­phy, screen­writ­ing and mu­sic com­po­si­tion and in­cludes cru­cial roles in an­i­ma­tion and im­mer­sive/in­ter­ac­tive sto­ry­telling, where women are strik­ingly in the mi­nor­ity.

“Our com­mit­ment to par­ity in­cludes a com­mit­ment to cul­tural di­ver­sity: we are com­mit­ted to en­sur­ing an in­clu­sive place for all women,” said Claude Joli-Coeur, gov­ern­ment film com­mis­sioner and NFB chair­per­son.
