A Poll. About girl directors.
It’s time for another bitchin’ poll. But first, last weeks. Last time I asked you which of the major film festivals lent the most credibility to their films. I wasn’t too surprised by the results.
Cannes received the most votes, with 36% of them.
Toronto and Sundance tied, each with 27%.
And there was one vote for Venice (9%).
No one selected the ‘Other’ option, but shout outs were made in the comments section for Montreal’s Fantasia Film Festival.
My question this week revolves around women directors. As I was making my list of fifteen directors that changed the way I view motion pictures, I was painfully aware of the fact there weren’t any women listed among those white men. Jane Campion came close to making the cut, but didn’t at the last moment. So this week’s poll is simply, Who is the most talented female director? She may be retired, dead, or still working. It makes no difference. In the comments, tell me which of these women’s films are their greatest.
