Film Paris Region is committed to equal opportunity in the film and audiovisual industry in order to support parity and diversity and fight against all forms of discrimination.
In 2020, Film Paris Region became a member of the 50/50 Collective. Created by professionals of the image sector, the Collective proposes joint times of reflection through Parity Conferences, which are enriched by a range of complementary tools:
- An equality observatory: to promote collective awareness and quantify changes.
- A guide for the prevention and fight against sexual harassment and gender-based violence in the audiovisual and film industry.
- A directory of less visible professionals
- Charters: for inclusion in the film and audiovisual industry and for parity and diversity in film distribution and exhibition companies.

Audiens, in partnership with Agefiph and the cinema and audiovisual committees for health, safety and working conditions (CCHSCT), has initiated a Mission for Disability in the Performing and Recorded Arts. Its aim is to continue to develop professional practices on disability in the audiovisual, film, live performance, technical service provider and radio sectors, as well as in the music and sound recording industries.
The Mission for Disability in the Performing and Recorded Arts offers operational expertise to companies wishing to find concrete solutions to meet their obligation to employ disabled workers (OETH):
- raising employee awareness about disability,
- employment retention advice,
- search for profiles and mobilization of financial, technical and human aid for the hiring of a disabled worker,
- expertise for subcontracting with the protected and adapted sector, search for service providers (translation of synopsis, subtitling, dubbing...)
