30 Days of Films Helmed By Women

For September, I am going to be watching as many films that were directed by women as I can. For the purposes of this list, I will only be including films solely directed by women (no co-directed films, unless both directors are women).

This obviously should go without saying, but trans women are included in this list, too.

My goal is to see at least 30 (1 per day).
