#ILookLikeAFilmmaker: Short Films for Women’s History Month
The gender gap behind the scenes in Hollywood is dismal, but film schools like USC and NYU report that half their graduates are women.
As a result, Film School Shorts has featured two dozen up-and-coming female directors over our last four seasons. For Women’s History Month, we put together a playlist of their films. It features shorts like I Feel Stupid, directed by Milena Pastreich and written by A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night’s Ana Lily Amirpour, and Kiss Me by Jules Nurrish, who was recently named a Film Independent Directing Lab Fellow. Watch Sequin Raze, the short film that inspired a now award-winning Lifetime original series UnReal, written and directed by Sarah Gertrude Shapiro and The Lotus Gun by Amanda Milius, a post-apocalyptic look at two women trying to make it on their own in a world without guns, plus many more outstanding films by women filmmakers making a mark on the industry.
