The Cesar Academy announces strict parity for its future bodies – rts.ch


Five months after an unprecedented crisis, crystallized around the filmmaker Roman Polanski and which led to the collective resignation of its leaders, the Academy of Caesar announces a broad reform which provides for “integral parity” between men and women.

The Academy which awards the most prestigious awards to French cinema announced Thursday the adoption of a broad reform of its statutes, adopted behind closed doors by the resigning administrators.

These provide in particular for strict parity between men and women in all its decision-making bodies, namely the general assembly, the board of directors and the association’s office. A “mixed tandem” will assume the presidency, explained the Academy in a press release.

More transparency and representativeness

In addition, now all 4313 members of the Academy who vote to award the awards can be candidates and choose their representatives, during elections to be held before early September, according to this press release.

When these new bodies are set up, the new leaders will have to work to reinforce “the parity, the diversity and the representativeness” of the Academy of Caesar itself, with a view to the 2021 edition.

This reform is the result of work carried out under the aegis of the National Cinema Center (CNC), which does not finance the Cesars but had been mandated, in the face of the crisis, by the government and the Academy.

A disastrous 45th edition

The management of the Academy had resigned en bloc in mid-February 2020, after several weeks of open crisis. Two weeks later, the 45th Cesar ceremony was held in a context of great tension, which reached its climax when actress Adèle Haenel left the room following the award of the prize for best achievement to Roman Polanski, facing rape charges.

In addition to the controversies around sexism, the Academy of Caesar had been accused of opacity and self-esteem by many personalities of the 7th art.
