Timed to the start of Women’s History Month, we’re proud to continue our community initiative, Amplified Voices, a digital space that will recognize and celebrate diverse voices throughout the year. This March, we’ve launched a Women’s History Month hub which spotlights woman-identifying filmmakers who have made an impact in cinema through our programming, never-before-seen archival Q&As, and more.
As part of our recurring “Community Corner” online series and in celebration of this year’s edition of Rendez-Vous with French Cinema, we asked the Film at Lincoln Center community to share their favorite French films directed by women. Many folks mentioned the cinematic powerhouses Agnes Varda, Claire Denis, and Chantal Akerman, along with filmmakers Mati Diop and Céline Sciamma, whose recent works have quickly become fan favorites. Thank you to everyone who joined the conversation via Instagram and Twitter.
This ongoing series is a part of our Community Corner, which brings movie lovers together in a digital space for community and conversation.
Although our theaters are currently closed, our Virtual Cinema and Media Center remain open 24/7. Stay connected to Film at Lincoln Center by joining our online community on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or Letterboxd, and don’t miss a thing by subscribing to the weekly newsletter.

Chantal Akerman's JEANNE DIELMAN, 23 QUAI DU COMMERCE, 1080 BRUXELLES (1975): While this arthouse classic follows only one character for three whole hours, I was riveted every single second! https://t.co/u1e4KFRByN pic.twitter.com/yvNa8R4JyA
