Once again, Women and Hollywood has tabulated The Female Factor. Same as usual, a paltry 7.4% which means two women with films of their own. If you count 2 women directors out of 10 in Revolucion 20%), it makes 11%. Notably Julie Taymor’s The Tempest ♀ is the centerpiece of the festival (yeah!). Kelly Reichert’s Meek’s Cutoff ♀ is also being screened, and Mariana Chenillo and Patricia Riggen are the two women director’s whose work is featured in Revolucion ♀. That Rose Kuo is there now as Executive Director ♀ as well, also a rather rare position in the festival world for a woman.
