FiXX is a united, global movement to drive positive action and sustained social change for women in film, media and beyond.
Film influences people on a global scale and plays a critical role in audience welfare. What we see on our screens shapes culture, the way we see ourselves and each other. Yet the statistics around gender equality in the film industry are profoundly unbalanced.
FiXX is the result of five years of research and consultation - reaching across industries, developing new mixed-media collaborations and learning how to build precise solutions to increase the visibility of female-led storytelling.
Our multi-media programme supports the worldwide distribution and marketing of films made by women, ensuring that more gender diverse stories reach mass
global audiences. FiXX also promotes the work of leading gender diversity organisations. FiXX support is at no cost to female filmmakers, or to the women and men that drive proven diversity initiatives.
“Having more female-created audiovisual content would impact positively on the portrayal of women and men, promote equality and encourage fairness in our society. Audiovisual content can either hinder or hasten structural change towards gender equality.” The Council of Europe, pan European recommendation, 27 Sept 2017
