Women's Empowerment

For a better world

Women, the bearers of life, have the power to change the world for the better, for their children, for all of us.

Today, the representation of women on screen is essential to overcome gender stereotypes and deep-rooted prejudices.

By giving women more varied and complex roles, the cinema industry offers positive role models who challenge traditional expectations and encourage women's emancipation. This helps to create a more egalitarian and inclusive society by showing audiences that women can occupy all domains of life and have a significant impact.

In addition, the presence of women behind the camera also creates professional opportunities for other women in the film industry.

Cinema has a powerful cultural impact and can be a tool for promoting social change. It is therefore essential to continue to support and encourage the participation of women in all aspects of the film industry in order to create a more equitable and inclusive world for all.

Manuel Collas de La Roche

President & Founder

"The better world to which we all aspire is now within our reach. Deeply humanitarian, I am convinced that together we can move mountains by providing concrete solutions to tomorrow's challenges.

In 2016, driven by the desire to take part in this movement of awareness, I launched the Better World Fund.

Yes, there is hope.
Everywhere in the world, women and men are creating, innovating, and taking action for climate change, social inequalities, culture, and education. The Better World Fund’s ambition is to highlight and financially support these actions that give hope.The power of film seemed to me an obvious way to raise awareness and inspire global world citizens to act for the future of our planet."
