ENG/ DK The BBC Culture reposted their lists of the 100 most important female filmmakers. Among the list are such amazing filmmakers as Agnès Vardas, Věra Chytilová and Chantal Akerman those films we have been lucky to show in collaborations with strong international cultural institutions, organisations and embassies: The late, great Agnès Varda was the most popular director overall, with six films in the top 100 and In 2018 we showed ” The Gleaners and I” with Aarhus Center for Visual Art where artist Lise Skou gave a inspiring talk afterwords. In the top 10 is Věra Chytilová “Daisies” from 1966, which we thanks to the Slovak Embassy in Denmark and Godsbanen were able to show: Last but not least is “Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles” an film that was so hard to get to and part of our “Slow Cinema” program 2019. Thanks to the Fondation Chantal Akerman, Embassy of Belgium in Denmark, the cinematek Brussel, Wallonie-Bruxelles International, Øst for Paradis and the support from Det Danske Filminstitut the film was showed in its entirety and on the big screen. You can find the whole list in the link! Let us know if you find that there are some female filmmakers missing from the list or some films we just have to present on the big screen or make a dinner for at FoodFilmFestival! We have to admit that we have considered Julia Ducournau “Raw” as part of the horrorbites program, and that in our view, Ana Lily Amirpour’s ” A Girl walks home alone at night ” which we screened as a simultaneous filmscreening with Andromeda, 8220 and Doc Lounge Aarhus is such an iconic film , it should have made the list🎞 #CinematekBruxelles #belgiumembassydenmark #jydskemblemfabrik #agirlwalkshomealoneatnight #raw #denselvejendeinstitutionGodsbanen #posthusteater #wallonie #agnesvarda #jeannedielman #daisies #thegleanersandI #docloungeaarhus #posthusteatret #Andromeda8220 #foodfilmfestivaldk #dfi #chantalakerman #bbcculture #aarhusbilledkunstcenter #filmselvskab
