Jackie Brenneman of the National Association of Theatre Owners and The Cinema Foundation heads up CJ’s 2023 Top Women In Global Cinema List. Natalia Baydan, the Chief Executive Officer of Planeta Kino in the Ukraine is a close second thanks to her ability to keep her cinema’s doors open over the past year during Russia’s military invasion of the country.
Our seventh annual list is filled with interesting professionals from all over the world who are not only helping the business recover from two years of pandemic closures but helping ensure its future longevity. As in previous years, the list primarily reflects achievements from the last 12 months, rather than overall career achievements or other merits of inclusion.
The complete list is well worth checking out. You’ll see some familiar faces and learn about some new names to keep an eye on over the coming years.
