52 Films by Women 2019

My yearly mission to discover new female directors. This list includes short films and stand up comedy specials directed by women. It does not include any films I have seen before or rewatches (otherwise Booksmart would be in there 5 more times, accompanied by Homecoming and Someone Great). 


This list is chronological, not ranked. Here are my top 5 favourite female directed films I saw this year:


1. Booksmart
2. Portrait of a Lady on Fire
3. Casting JonBenet
4. Someone Great
5. Homecoming by Beyoncé
