Diversity in the Norwegian film industry

On behalf of the Norwegian Film Institute, Fafo will investigate under-representation in the Norwegian film industry. In this project we will give special attention to people with minority background (indigenous peoples and ethnic minorities) who works as directors or with script.

The purpose of the project is to gain more insight into possible barriers this group can encounter in various parts of the film industry, what works well and what measures one might take to achieve increased inclusion and representativeness in Norwegian film.
