WOMEN ON TOP KEYNOTE LUNCHEON SERIES

Women on Top, an original Whistler Film Festival (WFF) event, returns on June 15 in Vancouver with Academy-Award winning actor Geena Davis.

Hear Davis celebrate sisterhood, discuss what her movies meant to us then and what they mean to us now --- as well as speak to why and how being cast in Thelma & Louise changed her life --- and spurred her into creating a women's empowerment non-profit and becoming a lifelong advocate for women’s equality in media.

The event is the first in the two-part 2018 Women on Top Keynote Luncheon Series, which spans from the heart of Vancouver’s entertainment industry to the mountains of Whistler. Women on Top aims to inspire women and men in an environment that promotes networking, learning, and growth around the issues of gender equity and cultural diversity in media both on screens and behind the scenes.

The second part of the Women on Top Series will continue at the 2018 Whistler Film Festival with an exclusive networking luncheon and keynote address on November 30 featuring special guest Madeline Di Nonno, CEO of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media. There, Di Nonno will speak about the institute’s latest research on gender representation in media, and why making media equitable and women on screen matter.
