EDITORIAL As MbM is aware of the inequality of women as film directors compared to men, it seemed appropriate to spend a major part of this issue on those women who have succeeded in directing their own films. We look at eight directors: Lynne Ramsay, Sofia Coppola, Agnes Varda, Jane Campion, Claire Denis, Nora Ephron, Kathryn Bigelow, and Greta Gerwig. Cinema Made in Italy is a short season of films which will be shown at the Cine Lumiere, South Kensington from March 7 â€“ 11. We review three of its films: Rainbow â€“ A Private Affair, Love and Bullets, and Hannah. Green Lit is a feature on two new film studios that have been given the green light to be built in the UK, plus an application by another studio to increase its size by 100 acres. Further, a listicle of some of the films in development and to be filmed in the UK. For Blu-Ray and DVD collectors, there are 3 DVDs of the Month. Finally, the Academy Awards and what MbM would like to have seen win in the following categories. Best Picture: The Shape of Water. Best Actor: Gary Oldman (The Darkest Hour). Best Actress: Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water) Best Supporting Actor: Sam Rockwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) Best Supporting Actress: Allison Janney (I, Tonya) Best Director: Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water) Best Documentary: Faces Places Best Animated Film: Loving Vincent Best Film in a Foreign Language: Loveless.
