Chairing a session on "underpaid and undervalued work". As a young woman at my first job in Woolworths, I was both underpaid and undervalued. We need to stand up for women workers in those sectors that are often denigrated. Low paid does not mean low skilled!

This is such an important topic. The younger kids on the bfi academy with me were shocked to discover the starting wage for filmmakers was £18k. They looked genuinely horrified and some had to start rethinking their whole career plan

Wow £18k start is amazing, well done you. My first job was £7k and I thought I was ‘rich’ when I was earning £13k in my early 20s...

That was the average my tutors found from a load of statistics. I’m not sure I’ve ever met any freelance filmmakers actually making that much
