#MujeresFantásticas, an Initiative Highlighting Women’s Power within the Film Industry
Actualizado: 4 de sep de 2019
In response to the voices that urge us to rethink the role of women in cinema, Los Cabos International Film Festival introduces the campaign #MujeresFantásticas (Fantastic Women), which aims to accentuate women’s impact in the film industry. The actress Yalitza Aparicio is the spokesperson for the campaign.
The worldwide and very relevant discussion about women’s equal participation in cinema coincides with ongoing concerns within the Festival. This is the reason why we are launching #MujeresFantásticas, an initiative that invites debate on the possibility of a more inclusive industry.
Alongside Yalitza Aparicio, the campaign’s spokesperson, we call for the creation of more stories with a gender perspective, including complex and diverse female characters, as well as better conditions for women to be able to work in the different technical and creative areas of the film industry.
#MujeresFantásticas, launched on Monday September 2nd, will continue during the Festival’s 8th edition, both through the Festival’s activities and the open spaces where women’s voices can be heard.
