Calling all women filmmakers! Celebrate International Women’s Day with a short film for Genero.

Genero provides an equal opportunity platform for creatives to find new work and grow their careers. We believe that diversity breeds creativity and want to help ensure more female voices can be heard throughout the advertising and creative industries.

To support this mission, we’re commissioning a short film to celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD) on 8th March.

The theme of IWD this year is #PressforProgress – a strong call to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive. The film should be 1-2 minutes long and focus on any subject within this theme, such as historical stories, equality movements, inspirational individuals or groups or anything else you feel supports the topic. We are completely open and want to hear your most inspiring, motivating and creative ideas.

We are interested in stories from different regions and creatives, so will commission one or more films which tell truly inspiring and motivating stories.

The final film(s) will be promoted to our vast network in order to showcase the work and the quality of our creative community, and to encourage more women to join Genero so they can find opportunities to grow their careers in an equal opportunity environment.

Please note, in the spirit of International Women’s Day this brief is only open to women or women-identifying filmmakers around the world.
