Joana Vincent TIFF Co-Head
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter Vincent said after stating that 36% of TIFF's 2019 films being featured are directed by females that "There's so much correction that needs to be made"
Recently TIFF joined the the industry's 50/50 by 2020 gender parity protocol. Additionally, Toronto is giving over 120 women creators free access to the festival's Industry Conference and year-round programming.
I love TIFF and hope to see more female directors in the line up as the festival continues on, excited for the changes happening in regards to gender equality!
Excited to see next years films!!
