The second edition of the Women in Motion programme will take place during 69th Festival de Cannes. Frances McDormand, who shone the light on gender bias practices within the film industry during 'Women in Motion' programme's first edition, has been chosen by Kering and the Festival de Cannes for this year's official poster.

During her Talk on 22 May 2015, the actress addressed the impact gender discrimination had on budget negotiations for female filmmakers, the lack of money being one of the main issues faced within the industry. Frances McDormand made her point hit home: "We don't need help, we need money. We don't need more initiatives; we need money. Women in motion - it's done! We are moving, we just need to catch up."

Launched jointly by Kering and the Festival de Cannes in 2015 as part of an official five year partnership, the Women in Motion programme aims to celebrate women's talent in cinema. In keeping with the first edition, the Women in Motion programme has two founding pillars: the Women in Motion Talks and the Women in Motion Awards. The Talks provide an opportunity to highlight the contribution of women and discuss their role in the film industry. In addition to the Talks, the first Women in Motion Award will aim to reward the exemplary contribution of a laureate to both the film industry and women's causes. This year's recipients are a dual prize: to Academy Award winner, American actor and advocate Geena Davis, and the Academy Award and BAFTA Award winner, American actor, and activist, Susan Sarandon.

About Women in Motion
The aim of the 'Women in Motion' programme is to stimulate discussion and encourage reflection on the place of women in the film industry, both on and off the screen. Launched in May 2015 as part of the partnership between Kering and the Festival de Cannes, 'Women in Motion' is now an integral part of the Festival's official programme. The programme features two fundamental components: the Talks, which are a series of open interviews with one or several guests, which take place throughout the duration of the Festival, to create a platform for considering and exchanging views on the multi-faceted issue of women in the film industry; and the 'Women in Motion' Awards, presented each year to an iconic figure and to one or several up-and-coming talents at the Festival de Cannes "Presidential Dinner".
