From Real to Reel: Representation and Inclusion in Film and Television Produced in British Columbia

UBCP/ACTRA partnered with the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media to do a study on equity and diversity in the film industry. The report provides data on the on-screen representation of gender, race, disability, fatness, age, and 2SLGBTQIA+ identity in B.C.’s film and television industry. It highlights both the progress that has been made and the challenges that remain in ensuring that all members of our society are accurately and fairly represented on screen. The film and television industry has a unique power to shape public perceptions and attitudes, and it is crucial that the stories we tell reflect the diversity of our communities.

2021 Member Census Report

In 2021, UBCP/ACTRA conducted a survey to learn more about the membership. Prior to this, there was little information available about the member demographic, and limited data on the issues members care about and the direction they would like to see the Union take. While the Union’s priorities have always been shaped by the members, this census was designed as a platform for all members to have the opportunity to provide feedback.
