A piece by Wendy Mitchell entitled “Raising Films survey spotlights challenges of parenting in film business.”
Mitchell notes that
Parents working in the film industry have “no level playing field” including limited job opportunities, missed work, reduced hours or seniority, and periods of time when they have to leave the industry, according to the “Making It Possible” report by Raising Films that is being unveiled this morning at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.
and quotes Raising Films Founder Hope Dickson Leach:
“Ideally what we’re trying to do is make the film industry more humane. This affects everybody…it’s about how society regards the work-life balance.”
