The ReFrame Stamp is presented in partnership with IMDbPro and it serves as a mark of distinction for film/TV projects that have demonstrated gender-balanced hiring. To earn the stamp, a film must achieve four points within the eight defined qualifying categories with at least two points in the categories of female director, writer, and lead actor and double points awarded for women of colour in important positions.
