We recently learned that actress Cate Blanchett is getting ready to make her directorial debut. This is awesome because 1.) it’s Cate Blanchett and 2.) it’s always cool to see more women getting behind the camera. Many of us are familiar with the big names — Sofia Coppola, Kathryn Bigelow, and Miranda July for the indie-lovers. But there are plenty of other women filmmakers who are making good, quality productions and who should be on everyone’s radar. Spike Lee recently made an addendum to his list of Essential Films and added five female filmmakers; here are some up-and-comers we think might make similar lists in a few years.
The Oscar-nominated actress best known for her leading roles in Juno and Inception will soon make her directorial debut with Miss Stevens. We’re seriously excited about the coming-of-age story (starring Anna Faris) that she’ll be bringing to the big screen.
Probably best known for her 2007 film Things We Lost In The Fire (starring Halle Berry and Benicio del Toro), Bier’s next film Serena will re-team Jennifer Lawrence with her Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley Cooper. Set in Depression-era North Carolina and based on the book by Ron Nash, we’re expecting big things from this seasoned director.
Having found some success with indie flicks like L!fe Happens and the hilarious short Idiots (starring Zoe Saldana and Kate Bosworth), Coiro’s most-recent release And While We Were Here -- an affair film starring Bosworth and Iddo Goldberg -- debuted to strong reviews at the Tribeca Film Festival and later in theatres. We’re looking forward to more slow-moving love stories and comedic-dramas with strong femme leads from Coiro.
