To help people with their 52 Films By Women challenge this year I thought I’d put together a list of some of my favorite films directed by women that are easily accessible on Netflix and Amazon Prime. Keep in mind that this is in no way all of the films directed by women available on these services, but rather a selection of films I have seen and enjoy. There are also many more films available to rent on Amazon Video as well. Think of this as a jumping off point! Also if you have not taken the 52 Films By Women pledge yet you can do so here.
In case you missed it, here’s my wrap-up for A Year With Women one more time. As I slowly ease myself back into watching films directed by men, I’ve definitely felt a bit of a culture shock. I’ve tried to keep my watching very women-centric, because I don’t know if I could handle a lack of women characters too. It’s been a relatively steady transition, although you will see my favorite films I watched last month were still mostly those directed by women! As always, you can see all the films I watched as well as a few favorites after the cut.
