Zhaleika 
Lora feels constrained by the tedious monotony of life in her small village, and her small acts of defiance are already causing gossip.

The Director List Highlighting the Work of Women

tdl-web-logo

The Database – The database is a practical tool to help members of the film and television industries find female directors for their ODA’s, approved director lists, rosters, and any other projects that might require a director. There are over 850 directors included in the database and each one of them has directed either a feature-length film (narrative or documentary), television episodes, or they are seasoned commercial or music video directors. And, of course, they all happen to be women.
 The database includes filters geared toward the needs of producers or executives– covering medium, genre, region, etc. As the site grows, more filters will be added.

Please feel free to let us know what additional information will help you find the talent you need for your projects. Send requests to help@thedirectorlist.com.
Please note, the database is intended to be a starting point in your research on women directors and does not claim to be comprehensive or completely accurate, though best efforts have been made to achieve the latter. Please do your own additional research before making any decisions. 
If you are an agent or manager with a client you would like to add to the database, contact us atsubmissions@thedirectorlist.com and we will send you a submission form. Please make sure their experience fits within the parameters listed above before contacting TDL. http://www.thedirectorlist.com
