IDFA signs 5050x2020 Pledge
Nine weeks before the opening of its 31st edition, IDFA is proud to announce it has signed the 5050x2020 Pledge for Gender Parity and Inclusion in Film Festivals. Launched at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, and previously signed by the festivals of Cannes, Venice, Toronto, Locarno, Annecy, and Sarajevo, the 5050x2020 initiative requests that film festivals around the world promise greater gender equality by undertaking a strict series of measures on transparency and accountability. In signing the Pledge, IDFA commits to the 5050x2020 objectives and invites all festivals to join the collective effort. Together, we can work to end injustice in the film industry, promote practices of inclusion, and enable a new generation of under-represented filmmakers.
