2018 in Films: 365 Days, 654 Films, and a Year Full of Cinema!

2018 was quite a year for me. I travelled a lot for work. I watched a lot of films in festivals. I had some of my lowest film watching months and some of my highest. I got into a bunch of television shows. I met one of my favorite directors of all time (Gillian Armstrong!). I broke down a lot of my 2018 cinematic shenanigans on my 9th blog anniversary post here, you can see my monthly breakdowns here, my Favorite Fifteen Films of 2018 here, and I even broke down my favorite new discoveries here over on Rupert Pupkin Speaks. What does that leave??? After the cut I have all of the films I saw in 2018, plus a breakdown of the films directed by women that I saw for the first time this year.

59 of the 2018 releases (out of 117 total) were directed by women, which is almost exactly half. I hope to keep that ratio up in 2019, but also keep it up with releases I watch at home as well. I had tried to do that earlier in the year, but both the Pordenone Silent Film Festival (at which I usually watch 100+ films, mostly directed by men) and my intense FilmStruck binge in November (again, mostly films by men) skewed my watching. 170/654 is about 25% of my total films watched this year, which is not bad, but considering what I did during A Year With Women, I know I can do better. I did discover some really wonderful female filmmakers this year which is always fantastic.

I particularly enjoyed finding the work of Niki Lindroth von Bahr, whose short animated films brought me nothing but joy.

In 2019, I have pulled together films by women on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and that I plan to rent from Videodrome to keep up my goal this year. I’ve also got that great Kino Women Film Pioneers set (some of which is streaming on Netflix if you are unable to afford the complete set). I also plan to see as many films by women released in 2019 as possible. For those who also would like to do that Women Direct on Twitter and Tumblr is a really great resource. They post what new films (in US/Canada) are released every Friday.

My main goal for 2019 is to continue to explore films made by female directors and share my love of ones I’ve already seen by bringing back Female Filmmaker Friday (check out my previous Female Filmmaker Friday essays here and the podcast episodes here). Here’s to a great year of cinema in 2019!
