“As women, we are privileged to work in one of the most open-minded and forward-thinking industries, yet women are still glaringly underrepresented in the top levels of our industry,” she said. “So the privilege of being women filmmakers also comes with a heavy burden. In addition to often needing to be twice as good and often only half as compensated, we must also be leaders, role models, and beacons for the next generation, which is why we need to amplify our voices, challenge the status quo, and empower women to get involved both behind and in front of the camera.”

On Sunday, September 11, Michelle Yeoh (“Everything Everywhere All at Once”, “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”) accepted this year’s TIFF Share Her Journey Groundbreaker Award presented by BVLGARI.
