Boudica Films, a leading UK film finance, production and distribution company, started the 'No Predators' campaign in response to #metoo. Since 2013 Boudica has supported female-centric films (films with female leads, female directors, at least 50% female crew) and previous films have resulted in 3 BAFTA nominations for Ruth Negga, Elena Anaya and Elizabeth McGovern, as well as a BAFTA Breaththrough Brit award for Florence Pugh who co-starred in The Falling.
Boudica’s 'No Predators' campaign includes a zero tolerance badge, a code of conduct and a legal advice service for any film professional who has experienced sexual harassment, abuse or assault through partner Equal Justice solicitors.
In 2018 Boudica is raising funds to continue and further its campaign which will also include mentoring and training of women entering the industry, campaigning for equal pay and opportunity and providing employment opportunities for women in film by producing and financing films.
Statistically the figures are dire for women in film. For example, there are still only 6% of women CEOs in the top 100 media companies worldwide. Only 3% of females direct Hollywood films and only 13% independent films. It’s time for a change.Back
