Ladima Foundation launches database for women in TV and film
The Ladima Foundation launched a new initiative, a database of women professionals in film, TV and content across Africa.
Dubbed ‘The A List’ – in less than 24 hours the list has already seen over 150 women submit their details. The list aims to become the most comprehensive database of professional women in Africa.
According to Lara Utian-Preston, Co-Founder of the Ladima Foundation, the aim of compiling and sharing this list is to encourage companies to hire women, especially in technical roles, so that there will never be the excuse that they couldn’t find any skilled women in their region.
The list will be open and accessible to all – shared widely especially with companies and agencies who may be looking for talented women to work on various productions and projects.
“We invite all women working across the various disciplines within the industry, from those just staring out to seasoned professionals,” Utian-Preston said. Women can apply via this link: https://goo.gl/zsfwyK
The Ladima Foundation is a non-profit organisation committed to supporting women in the film and content industries, (www.ladima.africa) and is currently compiling this list after it was suggested at the recent ‘Women of Influence’ panel at the recent DISCOP Zanzibar.
