Films Directed by Women

jessica-messica:

As part of my own personal attempt to watch more films made by women, I’ve compiled a list of over 200 films directed by women. I’ve put letters after the films to indicate where they’re easily available to stream. Each film is also a link to an entry on the website Can I Stream It, which will show you how to easily stream, rent, or buy the film. All entries with film titles in bold are personal recommendations. The current plan is to periodically update this post and reblog it. This list is by no means exhaustive. Feel free to reblog and add your own or send them to me. Either way, I will try to add them to the original.

Letter Guide:

N - Available for streaming on Netflix Instant
H - Available for streaming on Hulu Plus
A - Available for streaming on Amazon
B - Available for streaming on HitBliss
Film List:

This is a great list!

I would add anything from Mira Nair, as well as Suzaku and The Mourning Forest from Naomi Kawase.  If you really want to go looking for some squirrelly experimental sixties stuff, I recommend Maya Deren, Joyce Wieland and Shirley Clarke.

(It’s worth noting here that the only female filmmaker I studied in film school other than Maya Deren was Leni Riefenstahl, and I went to a school frequently lauded for it’s core curriculum’s insistence on diversity. You can’t really deny that despite being a Nazi, she did change the face of filmmaking in the 20th century; but you think they’d at least mandate a few other, you know, women who were not Nazi’s?  If you are at all considering going to film school please drop me a line in my ask box so I can talk you out of it.  Unless you want to teach film or something. They hire mostly MFAs to blog movie reviews now anyway, and you’ll learn more from watching Netflix and reading your Final Cut Pro manual than you will from an actual film school professor anymore.  Rant over.)

North American cinema is the only true weapon of mass destruction. It has achieved to convince the audience not only that it’s the best possible cinema, but that it is the only.

Leading Men Age, Leading Women Don’t | Vulture

There are more charts if you click through.

I’m so glad this info graphic is going around, because so many people don’t realize how ageism and misogyny play hand in hand and how the sexualization of young girls play into this.

I think cinema, movies, and magic have always been closely associated. The very earliest people who made film were magicians.
