We’ve curated all female directed Netflix content so you don’t have to.
There are 5511 titles in the Australian Netflix library (as of April 9 2020). That’s more content than you could probably watch in your entire life. But how much of it was directed by a woman? How much of this content focuses on female led stories? Well given we’re all sitting bored in Isolation I made it my mission to find out. And no, this was not going to be an easy task, but as someone who struggles to navigate through the Netflix interface to find content directed by women I wanted a list that I could refer to and I thought someone else might want one too.
Since there are thousands of titles to filter through, and no easy way to see who directed each film, I’m going to make these a series breaking down the list Alphabetically. Therefore this post only covers those titles beginning with Numbers to the letter A.
