Action Plan for Gender Equality in Norwegian Film Productions
To create a stable and enduring gender equality in Norwegian film productions.
The Norwegian Parliament has agreed upon a goal of better gender balance and equality in production funding. At least 40 % of the Norwegian Film Institute's production support should be distributed to women or men, in the professional categories of director, script writer and producer, so as to achieve a greater gender balance and equality.
The Action Plan was launched in 2016, and contains measures within talent development, subsidy schemes and communication and knowledge development.
A better gender balance concerning professionals working in the film industry, especially within the categories of directors, script writers and producers.
