Cannes 2012 film guide to where the women directors are this year

The 2012 Cannes Film Festival kicks off this week and promises a larger contingent of US films on it’s slate than previous years. Whether this is a good thing is for you to decide.

 

Cannes Film Festival: Where Are The Women Directors?

“For the 2012 edition, as with the 2010 edition, there are NO FEMALE DIRECTED FILMS in competition, and in the 64 years of the Festival only one woman — Jane Campion — has been awarded the Palme D’Or.”
