The word authenticity is used frequently when we speak of diversity in the screen industry. But what does authenticity really mean? Notions of authenticity and cultural appropriation are sometimes controversial, particularly when the words are weaponised. This panel discussion seeks to unpack different definitions and understanding of the concept of authenticity and discuss how the words are used in fights about diversity and inclusion.
