This panel, that took place at DOK Industry 2023, brought together representatives of various organisations and collectives working in the areas of anti-racism and representation in the film industry and its structures. The goal was to share experiences, successes, frustrations and lessons learned. The discussion highlighted opportunities for engagement and advancement, and – in the best case scenario – dispel trepidations and inspire action.

This panel was the kickoff of a series of events on diversity and representation in the industry conceived and organised in collaboration between DOK Industry and the Filmfest Munich.
