French Producer Sandra Rudich launched a EUR35m Investment Fund and Production Company Sisterland in order to develop, support financially and produce over 100 female-driven films, TV and media productions over a period of seven years.

Sisterland will oversee two structures: a Sisterland Studio Investment Fund and Sisterland Connect Production Company. Julie Gayet, actress, producer and activist is also on board as the project’s godmother.

Citing “the slow evolution of parity for women and diversity in France,” Sisterland aims “to break the glass ceiling by empowering women both in France and internationally.”

“I want to prove that we can give EUR35m to women and they can generate business in cinema, audiovisual and the entire media industry,” said Rudich. She said Sisterland is designed for both French and international projects and is in advanced discussions with the luxury goods Kering group” to further expand its global scope.

Film projects in development include Berengere Krief’s feature film
