Women In Motion Talks


A cornerstone of the Women In Motion program, the Talks offer a platform to leaders in the film industry who have contributed to advancing gender equality. Actresses, directors and producers speak out about the representation of women on screen or within their profession, and share their experiences and commitments. This year’s speakers include Dame Donna Langley, winner of the 2024 Women In Motion Award; Yseult, Judith Godrèche, Anaïs Demoustier, Julianne Moore, Zoe Saldaña; as well as a session with Cate Blanchett, Stacy L. Smith et Coco Francini.

The 2024 Women In Motion Awards

 

At the 77th Cannes Film Festival, as every May since the creation of Women In Motion, the Kering program grants two awards at a gala dinner honoring the work, creativity and contribution to the film industry of two women, one established, the other emerging.
The 2024 Women In Motion Award is being presented to Dame Donna Langley, Chairman and Chief Content Officer of NBCUniversal Studio Group, by François-Henri Pinault, Chairman and CEO of Kering; and Iris Knobloch and Thierry Frémaux, respectively the President and Director of the Cannes Film Festival. The Emerging Talent Award goes to Malaysian director Amanda Nell Eu. As every year, the previous winner of the prize, then Carmen Jaquier, chose the new awardee. 
 

Dame Donna Langley

Dame Donna Langley has dedicated her career to supporting cinematic works that capture the cultural zeitgeist and give women a voice, promoting inclusion and diversity both in front of and behind the camera. Initially Executive Producer at New Line Cinema, she joined Universal in 2001. She is now Chairman and Chief Content Officer of NBCUniversal Studio Group, and the first British woman to head a major Hollywood studio. Ms. Langley was elevated to the rank of Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) in 2020, a recognition of her achievements in redefining popular culture and her efforts to cultivate opportunities for women and people of color across the entertainment industry.

Amanda Nell Eu

Malaysian director Amanda Nell Eu is a graduate of the London Film School and an alumna of Berlinale Talents, Tokyo Talents and the Locarno Filmmakers Academy. In 2023, her first feature film, Tiger Stripes, was awarded the Critics’ Week Grand Prize at the 76th Cannes Festival, making it the first Malaysian film by a female director to be presented at Cannes, and the first Malaysian film to be awarded such a distinction at the Festival. In Tiger Stripes, as well as in her acclaimed short It's Easier to Raise Cattle, she explores the female body and identity in the cultural context of Southeast Asia.
