#FF Friday Fundraiser Mar 24, 2017

Why do you give gifts? Does it come naturally? There are many benefits of giving to others – it’s a practice of selflessness that allows you to drop focus on whatever might be stressing you. Even if just for a moment, you experience an endorphin high: that feeling you get when the recipient smiles or reacts […]

#FF Friday Fundraisers for March 10, 2017

Sarah still has her hands full with the True/False Film Festival, so I’m back once again to share our latest list of crowdfunders. Before we get to that, I wanted to highlight something that aligns perfectly with what we’re all about here at The Director List — Seed&Spark’s #100DaysOfDiversity campaign! Between Jan 20 – April […]

New directors added to The Director List database!

New Additions to the Database, Round 8!

An update! My apologies for how long it’s taken me to get to this update– turns out, running a website, database, and an assortment of social media accounts is quite time-consuming. This update adds 20 new directors and five updated listings (in italics). I also did a casual update pass a couple weeks ago, so […]

Our girl Sarah Haas will be away from the Friday Fundraisers desk for the next couple weeks while her duties at the great True/False Film Festival ramp up, so I’m here to sub in. I’ll keep it simple this week because I’m preparing a newsletter and database updates that I’m hoping to release before Oscar […]

#FF Friday Fundraisers for Feb. 17, 2017

Today I wanted to include words and thoughts from a film-goer, an art maker, and a connoisseur of stories in all forms. She has been a host to me in Columbia, Missouri, while I prep for the True/False Film Fest which programs the best in creative non-fiction (aka, documentary). While discussing my intro for the […]

#FF Friday Fundraisers for Feb. 10, 2017

While compiling the list of films & directors over the past few weeks, I noticed a trend – impact films. Stories are told to entertain, to shock, to show-off, but ultimately they are told to leave the viewer with a lasting impression. Two of the films below aim to impact the way we see the earth and interact […]

#FF Friday Fundraisers for Feb. 3, 2017

2017 Oscar nominations were announced last week without many surprises especially when it comes to representation for women as directors, sadly. FOUR major categories lack female-directed films, but as an eternal optimist, I’d like to share the highlights where the Academy successfully recognized women’s excellence in directing. First, Ava DuVernay received a nod for Best Documentary […]

#FF Friday Fundraisers for Jan. 20, 2017

Ready yourselves! A new era has begun and we need each other more than ever! As much as I love this country and all the directors who are born here and tell their “American” stories, it’s a good time to look beyond the U.S. borders and gather inspiration to move forward globally. On twitter this week, Director-Writer, […]

  Could it be that box office representation for women-directed films dropped in 2016? The latest “Celluloid Ceiling” study by the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film looked at the top 250 grossing films of 2016 and found: Women accounted for 7% of directors, down 2 percentage points from 9% in 2015 and 1998.

It’s a fresh new year – 2017! Welcome back to the round-up of projects crowdfunding this season with a woman in the director’s chair. Did you choose a New Year’s resolution for 2017? I’ll be finishing a feature documentary that’s near and dear to my heart. It’s been weighing on me as it’s been in […]
