#ReFrameStamp Awards Gender-Parity: Woo-hoo!

Updated: May 21, 2019

Women in Film and the Sundance Institute, along with support from the Geena Davis Institute, have come up with a brilliant way to let viewers know which movie projects

are gender-balanced. They're giving them the ReFrame Stamp of approval, according to a defined set of criteria.


"#ReFrame Stamps are awarded to narrative features and television programs that hire female-identifying people in four out of eight key areas of their production, including: writer, director, producer, lead, co-lead, speaking parts, department heads and crew. Additional points are awarded to content that has women of color in key positions."


Check out the list and support these projects!
