Céline Sciamma – Portrait of a Lady on Fire

“The film’s visually arresting style is akin to the style of painting at the time. The beautiful color and chiaroscuro lighting of the perfect framing always informs on the emotional state of the two young women of different class, social, and emotional levels. This is not empty visuals nor knee jerk bursts of emotions. Sciamma directs a simmer romance that’s the equivalent of a Henry James or Edith Wharton novel brought to life in 35mm.” – Adam Kautzer

Greta Gerwig – Little Women

“A few years ago Greta Gerwig was nominated for her astounding work with Lady Bird. Little Women seems like her graduation. Cementing her place in the ranks of top tier directors working today. With zero female directing nominations in 2020, it’s a shame that Gerwig wasn’t recognized for her brilliant work with Little Women.” – Shane Singletary

Mati Diop – Atlantics

“A stunning feature directing debut which is socially relevant, hopelessly romantic and beautifully ethereal.” – Marie O’Sullivan

The Safdie Brothers – Uncut Gems

“The Safdie’s have a truly unique style to their films and prove themselves once again to be some of the most interesting auteurs of the 21st century.” – Scott Phillips
