AGSC Women’s Playlist
Just as they have been historically, female composers continue to be under-represented in the film and art music industry.
APRA AMCOS released the results of research conducted by RMIT in 2017, which examined the causes and impacts of gender inequity in screen music. It revealed that only 13% of working screen composers in this country identify as women: one of the lowest rates of participation for any screen category.
We therefore celebrate our women composers here with the AGSC Women’s Playlist 2021 featuring tracks from 36 AGSC female and non-binary member, building on our inaugural 2020 Women’s Playlist.
Tracks from the likes of award-winning composers Amanda Brown, Nerida Tyson-Chew, Caitlin Yeo, Elizabeth Drake and many more are included in this celebratory playlist that covers soundtracks and screen music from all angles!
In line with our broader commitment to inclusion, diversity and equality, the AGSC joins with other national screen organisations, Screen Australia, Screen NSW, Screen Victoria, Australian Directors Guild, WIFT, AWFC, and many others, to redress this imbalance.
