Beside Not Behind
An independent short film by a majority-female crew is turning gender stereotyping on its head, celebrating the inclusive message of #BesideNotBehind.
In the Australian film industry, women make up 32% of producers and just 16% of directors and 23% of writers.
Written, shot, edited and released all within two weeks in time for International Women’s Day today, Beside Not Behind plays on the old saying that “Behind every great man is a great woman” and promotes the message that support can, and should, go both ways.
It follows three women in everyday situations where gender bias, presumption and misconception exist in sometimes the most subtle way.
