We’ve got a bit of a problem when it comes to film titles.
A recent survey found that only 20% of female directors are in the top 100 films list, according to the National Film Board.
(The top 100 is 100 films that are most likely to land at the top of the box office and have a $1 billion budget.)
And that’s just one of the many issues facing female filmmakers today.
When I asked the film industry’s biggest names why they didn’t consider female directors, the usual response was “they don’t make films,” but a lot of these women are just not interested in the kind of movies that would make the list.
In fact, many of the top directors who I spoke to have been working on female-driven projects for years.
But, even if they were, they still would’ve been overlooked.
“Women are often underrepresented in the industry,” said Jessica Reis, a writer and director of the upcoming feature film A Woman and Her Story, which stars Jessica Biel and has just been released in New York.
“That’s why there are so few female directors.
Women don’t necessarily have to be great filmmakers, but it’s really important to have someone who is.”
The list of female-directed films is a big part of why that’s true.
There’s no shortage of female filmmakers out there.
There are currently 11 women behind the camera in film.
But when you take into account that most of them are women of color, and that many of them come from working-class families, the numbers become even more staggering.
“I think the lack of women in the field is really what makes the issue of diversity even more prevalent,” Reis said.
But how do we figure out what’s great about the female filmmakers that we can look forward to seeing in the future? “
We’re really missing out on these talented women who have been making these movies for a long time.”
But how do we figure out what’s great about the female filmmakers that we can look forward to seeing in the future?
That’s where a new list comes in.
The list is called The Top 100 Film Directors of All-Time, and it was created by filmmaker and author Kate Bolin, who co-wrote the documentary The 10 Most Influential Women in Hollywood, as well as several other books, including The 10 Greatest Film Directors Of All Time.
She’s also the creator of the award-winning film Black Girl Dangerous, which chronicles the lives of female African American filmmakers.
(It’s currently screening at the Tribeca Film Festival.)
Bolin and Reis took the list and added in names from the film world, including a list of filmmakers who were in the film business in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s.
For instance, it was listed that Quentin Tarantino directed Reservoir Dogs, which also features a lot Black women, and director Kathryn Bigelow’s debut feature The Hurt Locker, which features a bunch of Black women.
Other names included Mel Gibson, Ava DuVernay, Susanne Bier, and Amy Berg.
The top 100 also included directors like John Landis, Woody Allen, Kathryn Bigler, Robert Altman, and Steven Spielberg.
So, how does this work?
The top 10 directors who were active in the ’60s, ’70s, or ’80s are listed below, followed by the directors who came after.
The following list is compiled by Reis and Bolin with help from a few people: Alfonso Cuarón, director of The Revenant (2014) and other films In the early ’60’s, filmmaker Alfonso Cuaron made a splash when he directed his first feature film, a science fiction film called A Voyage to the Center of the Earth.
He had been making films in Cuba and the US for years, and the idea of working with a filmmaker in the United States really appealed to him.
He wanted to make a film that was a little more intimate, and his films tended to be more focused on character and story than a lot Hollywood fare.
Cuaronson’s work is considered groundbreaking in his field, as it featured a lot more black actors than any other Cuban filmmaker had done before.
But he also became the first filmmaker in history to be nominated for a Golden Globe for his film, The Black Madonna, which featured two Black women (Lili Elbe and Vivian Leigh) in the title role.
And in 1981, he directed the first feature-length feature film in the history of Cuba.
In 1976, he co-directed the Oscar-winning drama The Man Who Would Be King, which was a very different type of film than his work on the Cuban soil.
In 1974, he made a short film about the Cuban revolution called Cuba in Motion.
In 1973, he shot and directed the feature film The Devil’s Advocate
