2019 awards season: Turning the lens on women

|A discussion with Beth Janson, Sally Catto and Tassie Cameron about women in film and television.

It’s award show season and the red carpet is being rolled out at NATIONAL Public Relations for our upcoming Women Inspiring Leaders breakfast—just a few days after the Oscars and a few weeks before our very own awards, the Canadian Screen Awards.

Join us in style for a discussion led by Jelena Adzic, Arts and Entertainment reporter at CBC News Network and CBC Television, with Beth Janson, CEO of The Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television, Sally Catto, General Manager of Programming at CBC Television, and Tassie Cameron, award-winning screenwriter and co-founder of Cameron Pictures, about women in film and television.

What is life like for women behind the camera? Do women tell their stories differently? Do they feel pressure to present women in a certain light? Does it matter? And should we care?
