Author: Sunny Side of the Doc

The second episode of the series Revamping the Doc Industry, Diversity & Inclusion: The initiatives driving action, not just talk! will take place online on Monday, June 21st, 2pm – 3pm CEST.

After tackling the issue of regulating streamers, the second chapter in Sunny Side of the Doc’s series of talks devoted to revamping the documentary industry will focus on the issue of diversity and inclusion. In the wake of the #MeToo and #BlackLivesMatter movements, the industry has grown more aware of the need to better include and represent a diversity of talents and voices. From ‘no diversity, no commission’ policies to the leverage of public funding, how are self-regulation and regulation turning the tide?
