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.

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.
