Film Fatales

The name comes from a group with the same name that describes themselves as “an inclusive community of women feature film and television directors who meet regularly to share resources, collaborate on projects and build an environment in which to make their films.” I began my own series in 2015, but this list includes other movies directed by women that I saw prior to 2015.
