Women in Motion
Since 2015, Kering is committed to providing visibility and equality for women in cinema through the Women in Motion program. As part of its partnership with the Festival de Cannes, Women in Motion continuously strives to broaden its scope and strengthen its impact both in the world and in all forms of artistic expression.
“Furthering gender equality is a key priority for Kering. That is why I am proud to continue the fight alongside the Festival de Cannes.”
Kering has a long-standing commitment to women. In 2015, the Group took a step further by creating a forum to highlight the place of women in cinema. The Women in Motion program, in partnership with the Festival de Cannes, aims to change mentalities and foster equality at all levels of the film industry.
Women in Motion is an integral part of the Festival de Cannes program. It is based on two additional pillars.
Open to the press worldwide, the Talks allow leading figures to share experiences and challenge viewpoints with regard to the place of women in cinema.See more
Each year, the Women in Motion program presents two awards during the event’s official dinner. One honors an iconic figure who has furthered women’s cause in cinema; another a young talented female director.See more
The Talks are organized across the globe and throughout the year to enhance program visibility and to raise general public awareness about women’s place in cinema.
Women in Motion also extends its influence to new cultural domains. Its presence at the Rencontres Photographiques d’Arles is a clear example.
“If everything suggests that this movement has finally been set in motion, this initiative is our pledge to ensure that it succeeds, and that the attention it commands never fades.”
