Festival Nature Through her Eyes, VII Academy: Panel Discussion – “What Could Possibly Go Wrong?”
The Nature: Through Her Eyes festival was a special event with free admission celebrating and highlighting women’s roles in storytelling about nature and the environment, including writers, photographers, filmmakers, as well as camera and sound operators.
The festival was held in Perpignan, France from October 18-21st, 2019 with presenters from the media, literature, academia and research, and legal and commercial worlds. Programming included professional workshops, seminars, film screenings, and mentoring, and these videos offer a glimpse into the 4 days of exciting events.
The UPVD was a partner of the event.
Women photographers, filmmakers, and authors often have an education that lacks any legal training. They begin their artistic professions as freelancers or on short term contracts. This discussion will be led by two lawyers, one French and the other English-speaking and offers a basic understanding of rights and contracts. It will address challenges particular to women—wage parity, sexism, as well as how to fairly negotiate a contract.
