What is PeekScore?: PeekScore is a rank from 1 to 10, assigned to every person. The higher someone’s score, the “more important” they are on the web. In calculating your PeekScore and updating it often, PeekYou takes into account your known presence and activity on the Internet, including but not limited to; your blogging, participation in social networks, the number of your friends, followers, or readers, the amount of web content you create, and your prominence in the news. For first time visitors a more in-depth explanation of what the PeekScore is, and how to increase your own, can be found by clicking through here.
We here at the PeekScore blog hope that the day soon arrives where the phrase “woman film director” – no matter whether the woman in question be critically revered, commercially successful, award winning, or all or even none of the above – doesn’t describe an in any way unique thing. As of this writing, however, it does and – in recognition of this fact – we decided to take a moment to acknowledge the careers and successes of ten of the most prominent, living female filmmakers in the world right now. Their films range from mainstream rom-coms, to taut actioners, to thoughtful arthouse pictures, and their careers span many decades. Indeed, all they have in common is a gender and a medium, and comparisons are largely unfair…
Unfair, that is, except for when it comes to the sizes of their various digital footprints (an explanation of which can be found above, or by clicking through here). It still may be unfair, but it’s harmless, and comparing PeekScores is, after all, what we do around here. In this crowd, 2008′s Oscar winner for Best Director leads the pack. She is followed closely by the director of the first installment of the outrageously successful Twilight series of films.
Are there any female filmmakers you’d like to have seen included on this list? Let us know in the comments.
