On April 30, RPJ Partner Nicole Page will be attending and moderating “Now What, Documentarians?: Beyond #MeToo” at Hot Docs, the largest North American documentary film festival, in Toronto, Canada. The panel will address the #MeToo movement in the context of the documentary film industry, and panelists will discuss a range of issues, including gender parity, wage disparity, language in the workplace, guidelines to be implemented, and what to do and who to address if you encounter poor behavior while working on a film.
Ms. Page will also co-lead a second panel on May 1, “Contract Surgery,” during which a team of lawyers will walk filmmakers through the legal cycle of a documentary film, address major problems that producers can avoid and offer practical solutions should issues arise.
