Women directors represent 50% of film school graduates but only:

  • 18% of directors screening narrative features at film festivals between Aug 2011 to Aug 2012
  • 13.5% of Directors Guild of America membership
  • 6% of directors of Top 250 grossing films of 2013 (down from 9% in 2012 and 1998)
