We have come a long way. An this is huge: On Saturday, February 9th, 2019, Festival Director Dieter Kosslick signed the "5050x2020" pledge to work for increased gender equality at the Festival and the Market. The signing took place in the Meistersaal at the "Gender, Genre and Big Budgets" event, organised by Women in Film and Television (WIFT), and the Dortmund | Cologne International Women’s Film Festival. With "5050x2020", the Berlinale commits to working towards equal gender representation in directorships and selection committees by 2020, and to publishing statistics on gender distribution in film submissions and selections.
