The Oscars are often dominated by male directors. So, here in the studio, we’ve been talking about some female filmmakers who are killing it this year – and we’ve got a girl crush.
Desiree Akhavan has been receiving a lot of attention with her recent Girls appearance and her upcoming film Appropriate Behavior. She wrote, directed and acted in the comedy film about a bisexual, Iranian-American navigating life in Brooklyn. We’re also cheering on Ava DuVernay for Selma and Gillian Robespierre for Obvious Child.
We hope one of them wins! What female filmmakers inspire you?
