Describe the main features of the policy/measure:
The 63rd edition of Filme Cultura magazine, with the theme "Women, Cameras and Screens", was launched in January 2018. Created in 1966, Filme Cultura magazine has become one of the most important spaces for dissemination, reflection and debate on Brazilian cinema. Since 2017, public calls are made to receive proposals for articles. Thus, the edition on the theme of women in the audiovisual brings a plurality of looks in its 35 texts, among articles, tributes and interviews, in 132 pages, which initially reflect on the gender disparity in audiovisual works, while relooking the names of women who made and make cinema in Brazil, in various functions, some of them rarely remembered. The editorial of the edition explains that "the resumption of these pioneers – in archives and pieces of files – is just a piece of this patchwork that is not homogeneous and much less consensual. We invite everyone to think together also about the representation of women in Brazilian films, even applying representativeness tests; national contemporary cinema and its possibilities for subversion in independent audiovisual; violence against women and the ways of representing it without following the same precepts – harmful – of the mainstream media; and even the possibility of deconstructing a narrative base so followed and idolized, but that does not contemplate the trajectory of women."

What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the policy/measure?:
The journal's collection is available in digital format on the TainacanPlatform, which allows its wide dissemination. With this, the publication promotes reflection on the theme of women's participation in audiovisual, and strengthens its inclusion in the sector. The edition of “Filme Cultura” magazine dedicated to women in audiovisual says "very little of what needs to be said, retold, reconstructed", but a step was taken: "believing in the construction of collaborative narratives, we brought impressions, theories and feelings without hierarchies. We expose evidence - not conclusions - about women's cinemas. In the plural."
