AWFJ congratulates the women directors included among the 400 films nominationed for the 10th Anniversary Edition of AFI’s 100 Years 100 Movies list. They are

  • Penny Marshall for “Big”
  • Amy Heckerling for “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”
  • Sofia Coppola for “Lost In Translation”
  • Nora Ephron for “Sleepless in Seattle”
  • Vicky Jensen, co-director of “Shrek.”

Ballots include space for five write-ins, and we’re hoping that voters will remember that there are additional significant women-directed films with huge fan bases– Marshall’s “A League of Their Own” and Heckerling’s “Clueless,” not to mention Ida Lupino”s “Hard, Fast & Beautiful” and Dorothy Arzner’s “Dance, Girl, Dance,” Nancy Meyer’s “Something’s Gotta Give,” and “Gillian Armstrong’s “Little Women,” among them. Balloting closes February 9, and AFI will announce the results in June.
