Well here's some interesting news. According to industry newshound Indiewire, all of the major film studios have at least two female-directed features coming up in 2022 and 2023, which has not always been the case in previous years. Even better, says Indiewire, these features show off real range, "from tentpole superhero films to animated outings, adaptations of beloved novels, plus genre-specific titles in both the horror and rom-com worlds".
According tothe latest study from the Celluloid Ceiling, the longest-running and most comprehensive study of women’s employment in film, women directors were up overall in 2020 (because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the study did not track new numbers for 2021). Women directors achieved historic highs in 2020, with women comprising 18% of the filmmakers calling the shots behind the top 250 domestic features, an uptick from 13% in 2019 and 8% in 2018.
