About Women in Motion

Women in Motion sets out to showcase the contribution of women to the film industry, whether in front of the camera or behind it.
Launched in 2015 by Kering, in partnership with the Festival de Cannes, Women in Motion is an integral part of the Festival’s official programme.
The initiative is based on two piliars: Talks open to journalists and industry professionals which give major figures the opportunity to compare and contrast their experiences and viewpoints around the question of women’s contribution to cinema, and to pool their recommendations for greater representation within the industry. The two Women in Motions Awards are awarded each year to an inspiring figure who embodies the programme’s values, and to a young film industry professional, who receives funding support for cinematographic projects.
