29 June 2016 5:36 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Us Academy’s new invitees are 46% female and 41% people of colour. But research shows industry women still face “systematic lack of trust.”

Reflecting its recent diversity push, the Us Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has invited 683 film creatives and executives, 46% of them female and 41% of them people of colour, to become Academy members.

If all the invitations are accepted, Academy membership will go from 25% to 27% female and from 8% to 11% people of colour.

Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs (pictured) said the make-up of the group of potential new members “continues our long-term commitment to welcoming extraordinary talent reflective of those working in film today. We encourage the larger creative community to open its doors wider, and create opportunities for anyone interested in working in this incredible and storied industry.”

The invitees include 283 new international members from 59 countries, 28 Oscar winners, 98 Oscar nominees and four Sci-Tech Award winners.
