Who’s afraid of Agnès Varda?

Masculine – Feminine

2010 will go down in film history on account of Kathryn Bigelow. She became the first woman to win the Academy Award for best director and best film.

Yet much to the dismay of many, the Cannes film festival didn’t find a single film directed by a woman worthy of competing for the Palme d’Or this year. Regardless of whether those films simply weren’t as good as the one’s that did get selected, the situation does raise the issue of the small number of films directed by women globally.

Today women seem to have no trouble getting into highly competitive film schools, but after they graduate many of them struggle more to establish themselves than their male colleagues. Several countries are now trying to redress this gender imbalance.

During this year’s Cannes festival one of the most innovative directors in European film, Agnès Varda, was awarded the “Carosse d’or” by FERA member SRF.

FERA joins our French members in celebrating the exceptional work of Agnès Varda, the “grandmother” of the French New Wave.
