How can the representation of female and queer characters be improved in the audiovisual sector?

Thursday July 14 - 10 a.m.
CCB – 2ND Floor

Pre-registration using the link sent with the newsletter to all accredited participants.
Limited spaces available.

We are experiencing a time of change in which society, and therefore also the audiovisual world, have begun to recognize their biases and imbalances. We need to ask ourselves how to reduce the use of stereotypes in the construction of female and queer characters. By analyzing scenes from films and series, we will assess whether their leading characters represent accurate and respectful portrayals, or whether they repeat harmful cliches. Tools will also be provided for understanding how to use character creation to write stronger and more convincing scripts that are more respectful to audiences.

Building audiences during the content creation process

Friday July 15 | 2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
CCB – 2ND Floor

Pre-registration using the link sent with the newsletter to all accredited participants.
Limited spaces available.

Audience building should not only be considered when an audiovisual project has been completed, and integrating it into the creation and writing phases increases the value proposition of every piece of work. In this workshop, we will examine how to produce performance indicators, measure and understand metrics when creating content, and search for trends with open and free tools.
