#ILookLikeAFilmmaker: Short Films for Women’s History Month

| March 8, 2017

The gender gap behind the scenes in Hollywood is dismal, but film schools like USC and NYU report that half their graduates are women.

As a result, Film School Shorts has featured two dozen up-and-coming female directors over our last four seasons. For Women’s History Month, we put together a playlist of their films. It features shorts like I Feel Stupid, directed by Milena Pastreich and written by A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night’s Ana Lily Amirpour, and Kiss Me by Jules Nurrish, who was recently named a Film Independent Directing Lab Fellow. Watch Sequin Raze, the short film that inspired a now award-winning Lifetime original series UnReal, written and directed by Sarah Gertrude Shapiro and The Lotus Gun by Amanda Milius, a post-apocalyptic look at two women trying to make it on their own in a world without guns, plus many more outstanding films by women filmmakers making a mark on the industry.
