During the program remarks, Oscar-winning producer and WIF President Emeritus Cathy Schulman talked about ReFrame, a collaboration between WIF, Sundance Institute and more than 60 Hollywood leaders, to create a formal action plan to further gender equity in the media industry. Schulman encouraged the packed room to ask for the ‘ReFrame Stamp’ on their films and television shows, which serves as a mark of distinction for projects that have demonstrated success in gender-balanced films based on criteria developed by ReFrame in consultation with ReFrame Ambassadors, producers and other industry experts.
