I may have decried the lack of female filmmakers among the Oscar nominations, but Women Make Movies points out that, as far as Sundance goes: "Although only 25 percent of the films in the festival’s four feature-length Documentary and Dramatic competition categories were directed by women, they won 50 percent of the top prizes." The full press release is posted at Feministe. Not bad.
Also, this type of success at the independent level emphasizes that the lack of women directing and producing mainstream movies is due less to the availability of competent female filmmakers and more to the biases of the system in which they're working. Just sayin'.
