Open brief aan Anna Serner

Na 10 jaar als CEO van het Swedish Film Institute neemt Anna Serner afscheid. Women in Film & Television International (WIFTI) heeft in een open brief ondertekend door 50 internationale filmorganisaties haar bewondering en dankbaarheid geuit voor al haar werk ten behoeve van gendergelijkheid en inclusie in de wereldwijde filmindustrie.

Dear Anna,

Thank you for your decade long commitment and work towards inclusion in the global film industry. It’s impossible to overstate the importance of your work for gender equality. Since taking the helm of The Swedish Film Institute in 2011, you’ve been an unwavering force for women at all levels of the industry. With your passion, dedication and clarity, you’ve led by example, and given us all hope, encouragement and strength.

When 50/50 by 2020 was introduced in Cannes in 2016, it became a global rallying cry – heard by film institutes, festivals, studios, companies and organizations on all continents. Since then, the industry has taken strides, but we still have a long way to go. We won’t stop. We won’t quit.

We all wish you the best of luck with your next endeavor and hope that we will be working with you again in the future.

In gratitude.
