Those interested in film theory, feminism, and gender issues will find food for thought in this collection of essays on the process, personalities, and production of women filmmakers in the past twenty years. Issues and topics include European filmmakers, mainstream films, the struggle for basic production conditions, postcolonial themes, multi-cultural projects, minority women, and developments in Canadian film. Some b&w photos are included. There are 39 substantial essays in the volume, each with their own notes; in terms of clarity and aesthetics, it's regrettable that a wrap-around layout was used, placing the beginning of many of the essays below the notes of the one before.

What difference does it make when a woman wields the camera? Women Filmmakers: Refocusing casts a critical eye on the often-overlooked work of women filmmakers. It provides a rich sampling of the wealth of thought and experience of women in the film industry and brings together in a unique way the views of creators and critics from around the world.
Questions of history and theory, genre, creativity, funding and distribution, national and cultural identity, and class all come to the fore in this unparalled contemporary study of women's film culture.
Equally accessible to non-specialists and researchers, this book will appeal to filmmakers, film studies faculty and students, film buffs, and those with an interest in women’s studies and cultural studies.
This wide-ranging volume includes contributions from prominent filmmakers and scholars, such as Helma Sanders Brahms, Deepa Mehta, Pratibha Parmar, Margarethe von Trotta, Ann Wheeler, and E. Ann Kaplan
