Over 200 Films By Women That You Can Stream Now On Netflix!

Inspired by womeninfilm.org and their #52FilmByWomen movement, I've been spending a lot of time over the last couple of weeks seeking out films directed by women. I found quite of few "Best Of" lists online, but I wanted something more substantial. This started out as a personal reference guide so I could quickly find something to watch on Netflix. After combing My List trying to find every film I had queued that was directed by a woman, I decided to take it a step further. I spent the last few days searching hundreds of directors on Netflix and compiling as comprehensive a list as I could. The result – just over 200 films, a disappointing yet unsurprisingly low number. 

This is why I support organizations like Women In Film. We are in desperate need of more diversity behind and in front of the camera. Hollywood has been a boy's club for long enough, and unless we continue to push back, they won't change. Amazing storytellers are being denied a platform simply because of their gender. It's bullshit and it needs to change.

So, in support of films by women, here is as comprehensive a list as I can provide of women-directed films currently available for streaming on Netflix!

And, if you're so inclined to read more from me, please considering following me on Twitter @BlunderingIdiom

Note: This list reflects the US region and may vary by location. If you notice a film not on the list that should be or a film that is no longer available for streaming, please let me know. I will do my best to keep this list as up to date as possible.

Update #1 (01-21-16): 24 new films added thanks to filmfatales.org  and their list. Follow them on Twitter @FilmFatalesNYC!
