Women in Horror Month: Rising Female Filmmakers

Posted on Tuesday, February 24, 2015 by


Women in Horror Month opens a dialogue about the inequality in the horror genre. Understanding the gender gap behind the scenes of our favorite films is important. A 2014 study found that among the top grossing films, only 7% were directed by women.

That means only 1 in 14.28 films is directed by a woman. Although women are better represented as producers at 23%, writers fell in at 11%, and cinematographers at 5%. The divide is huge. However, the horror genre is lucky enough to have many brilliant women actively making films and pushing to close the gender gap. Here is an extensive list of women filmmakers in horror to keep an eye out for in 2015. Read more at Dread Central.
