An alliance of German companies and associations to launch the first survey about diversity in front of and behind the camera.
The first comprehensive survey about diversity and discrimination in the German film and TV industry, titled “Vielfalt im Film” (Diversity in Film), will launch on 17 July 2020. UFA is taking part in the study, and Nico Hofmann, CEO of UFA, takes part with a video message about the study that you can watch below (turn on the subtitles for automatic translation).
The goal of the online survey of more than 30,000 creatives in the film industry is to acquire a data-based overall picture of diversity and discrimination experiences and thereby derive and advance concise actions for film productions, film promotion and politics for the development of a more just and diversified working environment.
The human rights organization Citizens For Europe is responsible for the scientific and technical realisation of the survey; the industry platform Crew United supports the survey with its comprehensive network of creatives in the industry. “Vielfalt im Film” is sponsored by the Federal Anti-Discrimination Agency, the Stiftung Kulturwerk foundation of VG Bild-Kunst, the Bundesagentur für Arbeit – Zentrale Auslands- und Fachvermittlung (ZAV), Hessen Film und Medien GmbH, MFG Filmförderung Baden-Württemberg and the Pensionskasse Rundfunk.
