The San Sebastian Festival extends the gender identity report to films produced in the Basque Country and Spain
The participation of female gender professionals amounts, on average, to 30% in directing, production, screenplay, editing, cinematography and music, in percentages similar to international productions
Friday, April 3rd, 2020

On request by (H)emen, the Basque association of women in audiovisual media and the performing arts and the Interterritorial Workgroup on Equality in Audiovisual Media 50/50 by 2025, the San Sebastian Festival has extended the research of its first gender identity report. The document now has a second annex focussed on films produced in the Basque Country and in Spain, including all those viewed by the selection committee and those finally selected for the programme of its 67th edition.

The percentage of participation by women professionals in the categories of directing, production, screenplay, editing, cinematography and music stands at an average of 30% both for films in the Basque Autonomous Community and in Spain as a whole, as it did in the context of international productions. As was also the case in the more than 3,000 films viewed and the 150 finally programmed, the lowest figures of participation by professionals identifying with the female gender are recorded in cinematography and the composition and/or performing of music and stand slightly above average in the areas of screenplay and production.

At its 66th edition, the Festival signed the Charter for Parity and Inclusion of Women in Cinema, in which it pledged to draw up an annual report on films in the edition from the gender perspective of their professionals. The Festival trusts that this X-ray will provide a starting point for witnessing and participating in a significant evolution in the coming years.
