This measure was reported by civil society.
Describe the main features of the measure/initiative: 
The Film Institute and Danish Producers' Association introduce a declaration in which producers must submit information on gender distribution in their film and game projects, both with respect to the team and contributors. The declaration has been tested for a year for supporting feature films, primarily to gain insight into usability and functionality. From 1 March 2020, producers seeking support for fiction, documentary, games and the talent scheme New Danish Screen will be required to provide information on the gender distribution of production. The declaration is completed for the first time on appication for production aid and it is updated and handed in again together with the final accounts. The self-report contains information about gender at all key functions of the team as well as contributors. In addition, the gender distribution is calculated in replicas in the final version of the script, as well as the distribution of salary and any salary as a percentage.
What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the measure/initiative?: 
The initiative took effect from 1 March 2020, so no results yet. However, the declaration has been tested for a year for supporting feature films, primarily to gain insigth into usability and functionality. The test period has shown that the focus needs to be strengthened in order to achieve the goal of an equal gender distribution in films etc.
