Non-existence of female directors

As the Cannes film festival has been set up with high flying colors and it is being said that this time competition is bit tougher. The main observation that entertainment reporters have quoted is the deficiency of female directors. According to couple of British film-makers it is “a great pity and a great disappointment”.

It has been quoted by a movie critic that

“It’s true the world over and in the world of film that there just aren’t many women film directors, so I guess Cannes is a small pocket that represents how it is out there in the world.

“And that’s a great pity and a great disappointment because women obviously make up half of the population; they have voices and things to say about life and the world that it would be good for us all to hear.”
