Julianne Moore on Gender Parity: 'I Believe in Quotas'

Wednesday, 15 May 2019 12:38 PM

CANNES, France (AP) — Julianne Moore says that for the movie industry to reach gender parity, it's necessary to implement quotas.

Speaking at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday, Moore said measures are needed to change the culture and that she believes in quotas. Moore says efforts should be made to level the playing field for women and minorities, and that "you have to open doors."

While quotas haven't been much discussed in Hollywood, they're more common in Europe where filmmaking is often supported by public money.

Sweden, Norway and Ireland have instituted 50-50 quotas in allocating public funds for male and female filmmakers, as has the British Film Institute.

Moore spoke Wednesday at a Mastercard MasterClass event alongside Werner Herzog and Xavier Dolan.
