Highlights of my #52FilmsByWomen 2018

If there’s one thing that people associate with me or my ~personal brand~ it’s promoting films with female identifying directors, or women in other creative areas. A popular challenge on my social media feeds is the yearly #52FilmsByWomen, a challenge that invites you to try and watch at least one film directed by a woman a week created by Women in Film LA .

Screen Shot 2019-01-08 at 10.21.02.pngMy first attempt at this challenge was in 2017 during my slump in watching films after moving away from Manchester, I only saw (discounting all the short films I watched to curate screenings for Cine-Sister) 19 films directed by women.

2018 was really a year where I focused and dedicated my time to learning about and watching films, as a result I saw 112 female directed films. I thought I’d share a selection of some of my favourites with you here of the films NOT released in 2018

You can see a list of everything I saw on Letterboxd.

These are just a small amount of the amazing films I discovered this year, you can follow me on Letterboxd for almost daily updates of what I’m watching.
