Not to be too self reverential here, but I have to thank Peter Knegt (June 29, 2010) for his Mid-Year Report's including the Female Factor ♀ which I quote here.

The mid-way point of 2010 is just days away, and indieWIRE felt this would be a good opportunity to take a look at how the year’s films have fared on criticWIRE thus far. At film festivals such as Cannes, Sundance, Tribeca, SXSW and Berlin, and as films are released theatrically, indieWIRE has been polling over 100 critics and bloggers to submit letter grades and review links.Interestingly, 12 of the top 30 films included in the overall recap were directed by women (including Ade’s “Everyone Else,” which is the overall top vote getter). This is still disproportionate to the overall population as most studies conclude that only 7% to 10% of films are actually directed by women. That said, if going by criticWIRE’s standards, the fact that 40% of the films represented here are directed by women suggests that while they might still not make anywhere near as many films as their male counterparts, they also make disproportionately greater films.
