Panel Discussion
Women in Animation

Sunday, February 9, 2020
FIAF Skyroom

As animation grows in popularity, so does the need to ensure that women are equally represented in the industry. This discussion will bring together women from a variety of perspectives, including producer Valerie Schermann (The Bears’ Famous Invasion of Sicily), director Anca Damian (Marona’s Fantastic Tale), writer Anik Leray (The Prince’s Voyage, The Painting), and Phuong Mai Nguyen and Charlotte Cambon de Lavalette (both of Brazen), who are currently working in animation in Europe. They will discuss the state of the industry, what is currently at stake for women, and challenges that lie ahead.

The discussion will be moderated by Hsiang Chin Moe, Chair of BFA Animation at the School of Visual Arts.
