Directed &/or written by women, March 2016

A couple of little changes: I’ve decided not to include Cinematheque screenings anymore and for one-off/festival screenings I’ll only be adding films to the directed/co-directed category but not the written/co-written. So, here are the releases for February (Australian release dates) that are directed &/or written by women. (Including co-directed and co-written).


Films directed/co-directed by a woman opening in March 2016:

Miracles From Heaven directed by Patricia Riggen, release date 17th of March 2016

Kung Fu Panda 3 co-directed by Jennifer Yuh (and Alessandro Carloni), release date 24th of March 2016

Sherpa written and directed by Jennifer Peedom, release date 31st of March 2016*

Dark Horse directed by Louise Osmond will be showing at The Sunday Sessions on the 20th of March

*This was included in last month’s post, but then it disappeared from the Palace Nova site. I suppose its release was postponed.


Films written/co-written by a woman opening in March 2016:

London Has Fallen co-written by Katrin Benedikt (directed by Babak Najafi), release date 17th of March 2016

Kapoor and Sons co-written by Ayesha DeVitre (directed by Shakun Batra), release date 18th of March 2016*

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 written by Nia Vardalos (directed by Kirk Jones), release date 24th of March 2016

Labyrinth of Lies co-written by Elisabeth Bartel (directed by Giulio Ricciarelli), release date 31st of March 2016

*Couldn’t tell if this was a limited release.


At the French Film Festival in March/April*:

Bang Gang (Un histoire d’amour moderne) directed by Eva Husson

La Belle Saison directed by Catherine Corsini

Lolo directed by Julie Delpy

Love at First Child (Ange et Gabrielle) directed by Anne Giafferi

Mon Roi directed by Maïwenn


*As the festival is moving around the country during March and April, I have added all the women-directed features in the March post. I’ve also linked the movies to their pages on the festival site, instead of IMDB. (If I missed any because I mistook names for a different gender, feel free to point this out).

Check below for where the films are screening:

Palace Nova; Hoyts; Wallis; Greater Union; Capri Theatre; Odeon Star; The Regal Theatre/Trak Cinemas.

Also, I’m just one (forgetful and easily overwhelmed) person and can sometimes miss things so, as always, please let me know if I have!

Note: information correct at time of publishing.
