Directed by Women July 2017


General/limited release:

Chicken People directed by Nicole Lucas Haimes, 6th of July (via Flicks)

The Beguiled directed by Sofia Coppola, 13th of July (via Palace Cinemas)

Paris Can Wait directed by Eleanor Coppola, 20th of July (via Palace Cinemas)

Everything, Everything directed by Stella Meghie was up on Hoyts just a few days ago but is no longer there. It’s still on Flicks. I think from next month I will just consult Flicks as it’s getting too time consuming and many of the films cinemas have listed never seem to end up screening.

The following were not on Flicks:

Polina, danser sa vie directed by Valérie Müller and Angelin Preljocaj, 6th of July (via Event Cinemas)

Our Time Will Come directed by Ann Hui, 6th of July (via Hoyts)*

Vikram Vedha directed by Pushkar-Gayatri (husband and wife), 7th of July (via Event Cinemas)*

The Art of Loving. Story of Michalina Wislocka directed by Maria Sadowska, 16th of July (via Event Cinemas)

Bareilly Ki Barfi directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, 21st of July (via Event Cinemas)

*These were in last month’s post but I guess it got postponed. It’s still not on Flicks.


There are some films directed by women playing at the Scandinavian Film Festival, including Sami Blood, Room 213, and Little Wing. Check out the full lineup for all the others, here.

Check below for where the films are screening*:

Palace Nova; Hoyts; Wallis; Greater Union; Reading Cinemas; Moonlight CinemaCapri Theatre; Odeon Star; The Regal Theatre/Trak Cinemas; Gawler Cinemas; Mercury Cinema**.

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’ve focussed on cinemas that have chains in SA/only SA cinemas.

**Mercury screens limited current releases.
