For Film’s Sake: forum at UTS
Part think tank, part feminist hack, part talking circle – For Film’s Sake is bringing together some of the strongest minds across three generations to uncover what has and hasn’t happened to move women forward in the film industry.

In 1987, an Australian report highlighted the pervasive barriers to women entering the industry and issued strong warnings as to what would happen if left unaddressed.
With the 1987 Report’s original consultant Eva Cox, Indigenous scholar and academic Tess Ryan (Melbourne Uni), author of Eggshell Skull and founding editor of Hot Chicks with Big Brains Bri Lee, emerging lawyer Tina Huang and chaired by Professor Deb Verhoeven UTS.
