It's fair to say most of us would prefer to forget last year, but believe it or not, there were some positives! 2020 proved to be a milestone year for female filmmakers. The Centre for the Study of Women in Television and Film at San Diego State University revealed that 16% of directors who worked on the 100 highest-grossing films of last year were women. That's up from 12% in 2019 and 4% in 2018.
The National News lists 10 female creatives and their films to look out for this year, Kiwi director Jane Campion and her project The Power Of The Dog is among them.
