Directed &/or written by women, October 2016

Australian release dates.


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

The Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe directed by Ros Horin, release date October 2016 (via Event Cinemas)

(I can’t tell if this will be released across Australia, or not – the Event cinemas site was the only one to list it – but it was the only one I could find in October directed by a woman). Update 4/10: seems to only be screening for 3 sessions and only in Sydney so there are no Australia wide releases directed by women for October.


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

The Girl on the Train written by Erin Cressida Wilson (directed by Tate Taylor), release date 6th of October, 2016 (via Palace Cinemas)

Masterminds co-written by Emily Spivey (directed by Jared Hess), release date 13th of October 2016 (via Hoyts)

The Neon Demon co-written by Mary Laws and Polly Stenham (directed by Nicolas Winding Refn), release date 20th of October 2016 (via Palace Cinemas)

(I wasn’t certain about the gender of the co-writer of The Handmaiden – if anyone knows, please let me know).

Check below for where the films are screening:

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

Mercury Cinema, while not like the other cinemas, sometimes has a couple of sessions of current releases. As always, I’m just one (forgetful and easily overwhelmed) person and can sometimes miss things so, please let me know if I have! I think doing these once a month means I sometimes miss films that pop up unexpectedly but I don’t think I could manage doing them more frequently, just yet.
