In 2018/2019, nine of the 15 directorships of the festival, sections, special series and initiatives are female, five are male and one such position is split equally. This yields the following gender distribution for leadership positions: 63,3% female and 36,7% male.
In total, 12 of the 16 selection bodies for sections and initiatives are only or predominantly female, two are only or predominantly male and two split equally between the sexes. This yields the following gender distribution for the selection committees: 81,25% female and 18,75% male. The third gender option “non-binary” was also offered in the voluntary self-disclosure, but was not selected by any person.
