Destri Martino’s been at it nonstop like a hummingbird making a name for The Director List, a who’s who list of female directors in film. What began as a personal quest to find kindred spirits has blossomed into an online watering hole where filmmakers can share news and connect from all corners.
The Director List began as a Pinterest board that helped dispel the myth of female directors being more fantasy than reality. From there, a twitter feed was started that soon hosted a community of like-minded filmmakers, scholars, and advocates for women. When it comes to action, Destri’s ready with or without a camera!
So what’s next for the daring director? Providing an online base with the tools to help the industry recruit more women directors for projects, while continuing to expand its online community.
