Her Frame Matters: Depiction of Black, Indigenous, Asian and Women of Colour in Canadian Screen Content
Part 2: Showrunners

May 17 | 1PM EST

Reelworld Screen Institute presents Her Frame Matters - a series of programs focused on the depiction of Black, Indigenous, Asian and Women of Colour on Canadian screen. In the first installment of events, we are excited to host a webinar with showrunners of a series featuring a major character who is Indigenous, Black, Asian or a Woman of Colour. Join us on May 17 at 1:00pm EST with R.T. Thorne (Utopia Falls), Mary Galloway (Querencia), Joseph Kay (Transplant) and more on the role of a showrunner in the shaping of a character who is Black, Indigenous, Asian, South Asian or a Woman of Colour. Topics will range from the processes for creating authentic characters - especially when those characters are Women of Colour, and how content is greenlit to how much ownership a showrunner has in the shaping of the content. The panel will also be touching on how productions prepare for actresses of colour on set.

This webinar is a part of Reelworld’s Protocol Guideline project, which will produce a research-backed protocol guideline to address the stereotypical depiction of racially diverse women on screen. This project has been supported by Women and Gender Equality Canada.
