Things are changing for women working in the film and TV industries, but more needs to be done. A recent report showed that of the top 250 films at the domestic box office in 2018, only 6% were scored by women. Similarly, it is thought that just 6% of current TV shows use music composed by women.

This special event will showcase three short films accompanied by original scores created in just 5 days by a group of young female composers from Leeds, who have been working under the guidance of Academy member Laura Rossi and composer and sound designer Christella Litras.

Part of Both Sides Now - Brighter Sound’s initiative to address the gender imbalance in music - and delivered in partnership with Studio12, the event will also feature a panel discussion and Q&A with special guest Nina Humphreys, an award winning composer for the screen.
