Movements like “Women and Film,” “Women and Hollywood,” “Time’s up” and “Me Too” have gained increasing attention during the last years and yet, it is not the norm for female filmmakers to be represented at major award ceremonies. After receiving bad press for shutting women out of the best director category for the last six years, the Golden Globes received a lot of praise for nominating not one, but three female directors this year. With the Academy Awards approaching, Villa Aurora invited three female directors from Germany to take stock and talk about their experiences in the European and American film business.  

About the panelists

With panelists Anja Marquardt (“The Girlfriend Experience” Season 3, Villa Aurora Filmmaker-in-residence 2016), Nora Fingscheidt (“System Crasher”/German Oscar® Entry International Feature Film 2020, MFG Star 2020) and Julia von Heinz (“And Tomorrow The Entire World” /German Oscar® Entry International Feature Film 2021), the discussion will be moderated by Sydney Levine, International Consultant and Director of the Women in Cinema Conference of the Dhaka International Film Festival.  

With Welcoming Remarks by Consul General of Germany Stefan Schneider
