Directed by Women

This September is the first-ever Directed by Women film festival – a global viewing party celebrating films directed by women.

Why is this important?

indie-infographicWell, according to the Indiewire’s Women and Hollywood project, from 2009-2013:

  • 4.7% of studio films were directed by women
  • 10% of independent films were directed by women

So in honor of the event, I’m going to be focusing on women-made films here on the blog, both historical and contemporary.

Check out the Directed by Women tumblr for more about the party.
