Respekt!-Tag: Panel – Diversity in the Film Industry

Many initiatives and projects in the arts are currently working with the term “diversity”. But the notion of what diversity really means and how it can be implemented differs greatly. How can we achieve equality in front of and behind the camera while maintaining creative autonomy?

To address this, a panel discussion titled “Diversity in the Film Industry: The time is now” will be held at the HFF as part of the “Day of Respect”. Participants: Maria Köpf (Deutsche Filmakademie), Nicole Ackermann (WIFT International), Karin Heisecke (MaLisa Foundation), Marie Mouroum (actress/stuntwoman in BLACK PANTHER and the latest James Bond film, NO TIME TO DIE). Professor Tac Romey and Elena Diesbach are the hosts of the panel.

  • Language: English

  • Location: HFF AudimaxX

  • Time: 4 to 5:30 p.m.

  • Free admission.

The events of the “Day of Respect” are aimed primarily at students, instructors, and employees of the University of Television and Film Munich (HFF), the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich (HMTM), the Academy of Fine Arts (AdBK), and the August Everding Theater Academy.
