Last year seemed like a good one for women in cinema, with Imperator Furiosa burning across the desert and Rey taking up position at the heart of Star Wars. But what does the future hold? And are women really getting their due in Hollywood and beyond? Fewer than 20% of major films have film leads, only 6% of Hollywood blockbusters have female directors and you’re still almost twice as likely to hear a man speak on the big screen as a woman. To discuss where things are going wrong, and how they might be persuaded to go right, Empire’s editor-in-chief Terri White has assembled an all-star panel of filmmakers: Belle director Amma Asante, actors Natalie Dormer, Cara Theobold and Hayley Squires and Raised by Wolves Producer Kate Crowther. Expect insight into filmmaking while female, spirited debate and a whole lot of inspiration.
