The ReFrame Stamp

The ReFrame Stamp serves as a mark of distinction for projects that have demonstrated success in gender-balanced films based on criteria developed by ReFrame in consultation with ReFrame Ambassadors, producers and other industry experts.

Stamps are awarded to narrative features that hire female-identifying people in four out of eight key areas of their production, including: writer, director, producer, lead, co-lead, speaking parts, department heads and crew. Additional points are awarded to content that has women of color in key positions. 



ReFrame is now accepting submissions for Narrative and Animated Feature Films

“I’m honored my first film received the ReFrame certification, and hope that by the time I make my next one, it won’t be at all noteworthy to have a bunch of women in charge.”
— Olivia Wilde, Stamp Recipient for "BOOKSMART"
“Having the ReFrame stamp on my latest film is as important to me as making sure I have film in
the camera. The ReFrame seal of approval is something all studios, producers and directors should strive for. It’s not that hard to do.”
— Paul Feig, Stamp Recipient for "A SIMPLE FAVOR"
