Jennifer Baichwal on the film industry's gender imbalance

Jul 25, 2017

Documentary filmmaker and director Jennifer Baichwal (Manufactured Landscapes, Watermark) is passionate about encouraging gender equality in the film industry. At TIFF '17, she'll premiere her latest film, Long Time Running (co-directed with Nicholas de Pencier), a documentary chronicling the final 2016 tour of The Tragically Hip.

Baichwal is an Ambassador for TIFF’s recently announced fundraising campaign, Share Her Journey, which is the first step in a five-year commitment to grow TIFF’s Talent Development programmes with female-forward programming to increase participation, skills, and opportunities for women behind and in front of the camera.
