Ms. Direction: A Spotlight on Female Filmmakers - Roxie
As we look to Hollywood to hire more female directors, it’s important to remember that although the numbers are depressingly low, there are women directing films – and always have been. From pioneers like Alice Guy-Blaché in the 1890s all the way to contemporary visionaries like Ava DuVernay, women have always been behind the camera. With MS. DIRECTION, we want to highlight the women who made films in the past, as well as those who make films today. We hope to not only remind filmgoers of the history of female directors, but also introduce audiences to its future. This will be monthly series at the Roxie.
