Two films included here suck big time, like it's even scandalous ('Diana'), others no one even saw it and are not even released until next year ('The Railway Man'). Well at least there is no Abdellatif Kechiche. I am having troubles seeing this as it is, I can't think of seeing it at all with Kechiche in it.
Oliver Hirschbiegel, Diana.
James Gray, The Immigrant.
Atom Egoyan, The Devil's Knot.
Jonathan Teplitzky, The Railway Man.
Ryan Coogler, Fruitvale Station.
And now there are these women (and then some more):
Stacie Passon, Concussion - Good solid film.
Sarah Polley, Stories We Tell.
Gabriela Cawperthwait, Blackfish.
Sofia Coppola, The Bling Ring.
Kelly Reichardt, Night Moves.
Martha Cunningham, Valentine Road.
Kat Coiro, And While We Were Here.
Maggie Carey, The Do To List.
Jill Soloway, Afternoon Delight.
Eliza Hittman, It Felt Like Love.
Clio Bernard, The Selfish Giant.
Jerusha Hess, Austenland.
Liz W. Garcia, The Lifeguard.
Nicole Holofcener, Enough Said.
Hannah Fidell, A Teacher.
Lynn Shelton, Touchy Feely.
Lake Bell, In a World...
Chloé Robichaud - Sarah Prefers to Run.
Anne Fontaine, Adore.
Diablo Cody, Susanne Bier, Naomi Foner, Angelina Jolie...
I am sure they would also have interesting stories to tell about how hard it is to make films, oh, even opinions about the film industry in general.
It's called diversity. Common.
Or unless you're bringing an all female edition?
I doubt it.
