You can already find a list of 50 films to look forward to in 2018, as collected by Alissa Wilkinson on VOX.com. My highlights from the list are: BLACK PANTHER directed by Ryan Coogler, A WRINKLE IN TIME directed by Ava DuVernay, ISLE OF DOGS directed by Wes Anderson, YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE directed by Lynne Ramsay, OCEANS 8 directed by Gary Ross, MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS directed by Josie Rourke, and MULAN directed by Niki Caro. Whether there’s a woman directing or a cast with strong lady-leads, it looks like we’re in for a handful of Box Office bright spots! What are you looking forward to in 2018?
Our crowdfunding round-up list is short again this Friday, but I’m sure we’re just getting started and more projects will pour in throughout the next few weeks. Do you have a project or know of a woman crowdfunding for her project this year? Let us know via email (instructions at the bottom of the post) or tweet at us @TheDirectorList and we’ll add it for next week! Check there for re-tweets too. Thanks for your support!
Reminder: All of the projects listed below have female directors at the helm OR they are projects that benefit women directors (e.g., film festivals, funds, etc). The campaigns at the top of the list are the ones ending soonest, so get in there and support ASAP (with $$ or an RT on Twitter). Click the titles to go directly to each project’s crowdfunding page, those in italics are new additions this week.
