female directors

A collection of films directed by women. A resource for those who would like to explore women in film as well as for the #52filmsbywomen challenge. I've excluded certain films by female directors either because other films by the same filmmaker were included in the list (e.g. Sofia Coppola's 'Bling Ring') or because I personally wouldn't suggest them to people (e.g. 'Twilight').
