100 Great Films By Female Directors: The List At A Glance – Articles | Little White Lies

Probably my favourite film magazine, Little White Lies, weighs in on issues of women and the canon, this time in cinema (both directing and screenwriting). How fortuitous!

Gender & Authority

Great to see this list of 100 Great Films By Female Directors from film magazine Little White Lies (LWL). Yet another symptom of the growing conversation around women and canons in many media and contexts.

This list comes at the end of a countdown and as part of a longer history of pieces in LWL asking questions like ‘Where are all the women screen writers?’. It’s great to see these discussions happening all over and we’re very much looking forward to picking up some of these strands and hearing everyone’s responses to them come January. Before that, remember to send your 250 word  abstracts to with a brief biography to womencanonconference@gmail.com by 15 September.
