News__ Top 10 Female Directed Films

February 09, 2012 | By

Exsqueeze me? Baking Powder? In a world without female directors, there would be no Wayne's World!

When was the last time you curled up in a blanket, ate a bowl of disgustingly buttery popcorn and melted into the couch while watching a really great movie? If it's been a while, it's probably time to indulge. A great movie can change how you see the world, inspire you to make life changes, make you feel like your life isn't so bad, or light a fire under your ass.

The Center for the Study of Women in Television & Film has found that of the highest grossing films in 2011 (250 of them), only 5% were directed by women. Because this news is so incredibly depressing (especially considering that number is DOWN from 1998 when at least 10% of the top grossing films were directed by women!), we've decided to put together a list of our favorite female-directed films in the hopes that we can help this pathetic number climb.
