Creating New Narratives

Guided by Swedish Film Institute’s goal of ’50/50 by 2020’ and its subsequent take-up in various countries, Carla 2020 will convene thought leaders in a virtual setting using scalable solutions, with a ‘global to local’ strategy to create a more diverse and inclusive industry in the world beyond 2020.

The fully digital three-day symposium on gender parity is where the international film ecosystem will convene – film professionals, researchers, public officials, film school representatives, studio and broadcast executives, financiers, journalists and activists gather to analyze diversity progress to date, set goals and create new solutions.

The mission of Carla 2020 is to generate a deeper understanding of the power and impact of our industry on cultural progress. Reaching beyond the work of film festivals and industry events, Carla 2020 will focus on systemic change and personal growth of all players in the industry.  

With a ‘global to local’ approach, Carla 2020 will connect participating countries with current research and best practices together with future ground-breaking initiatives. This event will leave participants energized with new tools and strategies to implement in their countries of origins.
