The jury´s statement:
”To make film can be to have the courage
to highlight complex of problems or points of view that are easily overlooked.
To make film can be to bring forth images and stories which would have otherwise been invisible, unheard of, just waiting to be told.
This years genius succeeds in brillantly combining a great engagement in local and global issues with an extraordanary artistic merit, while simultaneously challenging norms in regards to providing a good work environment while in production within the film’s financial framework.
This Doris Genius has extensive experience in a wide range of professions in filmproduction and has, due to her aspiration towards a better world, masterfully produced movies like ”Eat, sleep,die,” ”On Suffocation”, ”Refugee 532” and ”My aunt in Sarajevo”

After the seminar we had a light lunch and then we were divided into three groups to come up with ideas for cooperation. A lot of inspiring and interesting ideas were raised. Three children were invited to test the first chapter of the Doris computer game with Lisa and to tell about their  thoughts about it.

Doris Film i Litauen 20151011

Under svenskt statsbesök i Vilnius Litauen och under rubriken ”House of Sweden” visades Doris Film den 11 oktober. ”House of Sweden” arrangerades av Svenska Ambassaden i Vilnius och var en helgaktivitet speciellt riktat till familjer. Filmvisningen med efterföljande samtal blev mycket lyckad och flera deltagare kommenterade och ställde frågor. Detta följdes av en diskussion om jämställdhetsfrågor med Litauens JämO.
Samtalet efter Dorisfilmen kallades ”What’s Your Life Puzzle?” och kopplades ihop med SI:s utställning med samma namn där Jämställdhetsombudsmannen, tillsammans med European Gender Equality Insitute’s genusexpert även höll en öppen diskussion som handlade om arbete med jämställdhetsfrågor, föräldraledighet, samhällsstereotyper och normer m.m
