Abstract [en]

Film have developed in parallel with gender equality in society in recent decades, and how film and gender are in relation has become clear through recent years being the subject of hot debate with the examples Ghostbusters (2016) or Ocean's Eight (2018). This paper aims to create an understanding of what within film contributes to the experience of gender through qualitative interviews with subjects of different sex and age. Through a thematic analysis, the results that have emerged have pointed out that visualization and design are the biggest contributing factors to how gender is perceived within film with subcategories such as framing, gaze, structure, roles and interaction. The study's results cannot be seen as generalisable or having sufficiently high reliability and validity and further research has therefore been recommended.
