Lexington Books, Sep 16, 2011 - Art - 236 pages
Noteworthy Francophone Women Directors: A Sequel is a comprehensive guide that acts as both a teaching tool and a directory for research. The book begins following films released after the publication of Pallister and Hottell's last volume, Francophone Women Film Directors in 2005 and stops after the Cannes film festival in 2010. Unique among guides dealing with film, both for its breadth and for its exclusive attention to Francophone women throughout the world, this work foregrounds the production by nearly three hundred Francophone women filmmakers from France, Belgium, Switzerland, Latin American, Québec, even Thailand. The authors have researched film journals, followed web sites, attended film festivals and conferences, and traveled around the globe to conduct research in film libraries, and attend screenings and interviews with filmmakers. A list of film sources, an extensive bibliography, and an index of film directors and the titles of their films maximize this directory's usefulness.
