ProQuote-Regie

Was wir wissen:

Die Zahlen sprechen auch in der Dokumen­tar­filmbranche eine konkrete Sprache. Regisseurinnen sind vor allem bei mittellangen Formaten wie z.B. 37 Grad (ZDF) oder Lebenslinien (BR), bei denen die Budgets geringer sind, vertreten. Formate mit höheren Budgets wie z.B. Terra X werden weiterhin von den männlichen Kollegen dominiert. Auch im Bereich Kinodoku­men­tarfilm ist der Anteil der Regisseurinnen mit zuletzt 31% weit entfernt von einer geschlechtergerechten Verteilung.

Nicht die Quote im Kreativberuf Regie steht zur Debatte, wohl aber die Strategien zu ihrer Umsetzung. Zeit für konkrete Maßnahmen – angefangen mit der paritätischen Besetzung von Vergabegremien in Fernsehsendern und Förderungsinstitutionen und der besonderen Berücksichtigung von Einreichungen weiblicher Regisseure.
