Now the NYFF is not perfect. They have given all the gala slots to male directed films. But I can't cry too much when they have made a real concerted effort to include a wide diversity of women on their program.
Here are the women directed films:
ARAF – SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN - Director: Yeşim Ustaoğlu
CAMILLE REWINDS (Camille redouble) - Director: Noémie Lvovsky
FILL THE VOID (Lemale et ha'halal) - Director: Rama Burshtein
GINGER AND ROSA - Director: Sally Potter
LEVIATHAN - Directors: Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Véréna Paravel
LINES OF WELLINGTON (Linhas de Wellington) - Director: Valeria Sarmiento
MEMORIES LOOK AT ME (Ji Yi Wang Zhe Wo) - Director: Song Fang
Here is the full lineup. The festival kicks off on September 28th and runs through October 14th.
