Ageism in Film and TV: Will we ever grow out of our obsession with youth?
Is it true that roles for people aged 50+ are scarce and older women* – especially when they are senior women* of color – become almost invisible on screen? Which challenges do we face in terms of age discrimination in casting and hiring? How does ageism determine the choices we make as writers, directors and producers? And will we ever grow out of our obsession with youth?
During our panel we will take a closer look at the representation of age in cinema, speak about the ways in which ageism limits careers and discuss possibilities to shift the narrative around aging.
