Famous Female Directors

Some famous female directors are not common household names however, some of their films are for sure. There are only a few I showed in the previous post; Shrek (co-directed by Vicky Jenson and Andrew Adamson), The Hurt Locker (directed by Kathryn Bigelow), and Twilight (directed by Catherine Hardwick), all directed or co-directed by women in Hollywood. Many women in the film industry start out by co-directing before directing on their own. One of the more recent and highly successful films, Frozen (2013), was co-directed by a woman, Jennifer Lee.
