Please Adjust Your Set is currently partnering with the Advocacy Committee of Vancouver Women in Film and Television to gather statistics on women’s participation in the Canadian Film and Television sector and to present our findings to key stakeholders in the industry.

This web site offers individuals in the film and television industry as well as professional organizations, associations and agencies a central place to find research data, share information, strategies, successes and challenges around issues and topics that impact women in this industry.

Over the last several years we’ve compiled information on women in various sectors of the Canadian and international film industries.

You can find this research under the PAYS Stats tab on this website.
