Influencer Screening – Frozen 2

December 12, 2019

Hosted by Disney Animation

The Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, Disney and Facebook hosted a screening of Frozen 2, coupled with a candid fireside chat between two leading changemakers, writer/director of Frozen 2, Chief Creative Officer of Walt Disney Animation Studios, and Academy Award-winning filmmaker Jennifer Lee, and 2x Academy Award-Winning actor and Institute Founder and Chair, Geena Davis. The conversation was made possible through Facebook SEEN, a program created in 2017 to support and drive awareness of underrepresented filmmakers in the entertainment industry (Instagram @seen). This program spotlights and directs attention to films by underrepresented filmmakers in spaces such as Sundance, SXSW, ADCOLOR, and Facebook Community Boost. The initiative also provides filmmakers with data and strategies to highlight audience demand for these films.

Also see exclusive excerpts from their behind-the-scenes conversation with Geena Davis and Jennifer Lee.
