GEMM Standards

In order to work with GEMM and to benefit from the advantages of the fund, the producers, the directors and the distributors should be aware that our requirements are based on the protection of all the minorities in the media industry during the different phases of the production of a film.

 

The standards that they will be required to respect are aimed at promoting and sustaining equitable productions.

 

Our goal is to support minorities and to support inclusion. Our focus is on ethical behaviour throughout the production process, rather than than the notion of quotas or the subjects of the stories. At the end of the day, we want to achieve equal treatment for all human beings; of all those who are involved in the production of a movie.

 

Of course we like good stories that have a positive and valuable message to tell, but the principles must also be applied to mainstream productions that are focused on pure entertainment, even when they do not vehicle a moral cause or message.

 

We will not limit ourselves to Arthouse or Independent movies, as we feel that the message will only truly be received and sustained when it begins to be applied on a regular and permanent basis to the bigger productions that have tended to overlook the abuse and discrimination that results from the misuse of power.

 

In order to work with GEMM, those who drive the productions must agree to respect and implement a series of ethical requirements that will ensure that everybody involved in the production is concerned by the question of Gender Equality and Diversity.

 

In order to develop and perpetuate the activities of the fund, we will only become involved in a project when it has become financially viable and all of the major production partners (studios, producers, financiers and funds) have been confirmed, at which point we will be able to engage the decision makers in implementing GEMM's philosophy.

为了让GEMM基金在全球有更良好的运行和发展,作为制片人、导演和发行人,我们有责任确保我们所有的需求都是建立在保护文化产业里每部电影生产过程的各个环节和阶段中所有弱势群体权益的基础上。

 

这些需要被尊重的标准旨在推进和维持公平的创作环境;我们的目的就是帮助和扶持弱势群体,给予他们包容和支持,我们重点关注在生产过程中的道德行为,而不只是简单的特定群体、团队和故事主题;我们的愿景是在未来的某一天,通过我们有限的力量,来推动和实现全人类都能得到平等对待,拥有同等公平、公正的机会和发展,特别是那些参与到电影制作中的工作人员;我们当然喜欢那些充满正能量、有价值的好故事,但是我们不会局限于艺术电影和独立电影,我们的原则也同样适用于那些纯娱乐性质的主流制作,即使他们没有很强的人文价值或道德传递,因为我们认为:只有当这些原则不断地运用于大型制作时,才能实现和推进我们的愿景,而且这些大型制作往往更容易出现由于忽略监督、滥用权力而导致歧视事件的发生。为了能够与GEMM共同推进和发展这一伟大的目标,所有项目的制作人必须同意并一起遵守这一系列的道德要求,以确保参与制作的所有人员都能够得到公平、公正对待及关怀,在性别平等以及包容多样性文化等的环境下工作。

 

为了持久开展基金的活动,我们只参与在财务上无问题、风险可控、可执行且所有主要制片合作伙伴(电影公司、制片、投资和基金方)都得到确认后的项目,那时我们将能够与相关的决策者一同参与并实施GEMM的理念与愿景。
