We spotlight the projects directed by women premiering in theaters, film festivals, and streaming platforms around the world in 2022. Update your watchlist!
Inspired by Alison Bechdel's comic strip 'The Rule,' the Bechdel Test is a simple measure to see if women are fairly represented in a film. For a film to pass the Bechdel Test, the movie must meet the following bar: 1) it must have at least two female characters; 2) they must both have names; 3) they must talk to each other about something other than a man.
We salute the brilliant women behind all those unforgettable laughs on the small screen.
