The Finnish Film Foundation (SES) launched in year 2016 a forum of accessibility. The forum consists of representatives of the disability organizations and of the film field (including also Culture for All). The aim of the forum is to compose a manual of accessibility for professionals on the film field. In the end of 2017 SES also launched a forum of equality in order to discuss equality issues on the film field. The aim of the forum is, besides to promote gender equality, to also address equality issues related to i.e. language, ethnicity and cultural background. The aim is to produce an equality working plan for the film industry, with recommendations on how to promote equality in the field. In February 2018 SES also published, together with other film organizations, recommendations for how to stop sexual harassment on the field of film and TV.
