Description

In 91 years of Oscars®, there have only ever been five—5!—women nominated in the Best Director category. In this one year at MVFF, we’ve assembled six potential Awards-track women directors in this forum alone, as well as the many others represented by their films throughout the festival—making up the 48% of MVFF directors who just happen to be women. This panel takes a deep dive into what it takes to sustain a career as a filmmaker—of fiction, animation, documentary—in 2019.

  • ZABOU BREITMAN, The Swallows of Kabul
  • SIPPY CHADA, Subira
  • CHINONYE CHUKWU, Clemency
