Q: Where did your #Directed By Women idea come from? I established a process I dubbed A Yearlong Film Viewing Balancing Act.
I dedicated myself – as I wrote on my O’Leary’s Reel Life Tumblr – to 'inviting authentic creative expression to flourish in the world in a balanced and harmonious way by bringing my attention to – and opening to receive – the creative motion picture outpourings of women and men filmmakers in equal measure'.
Each day more and more and more and more women filmmakers came to my attention.
I hear repeatedly from people inside and outside of the film community that there are very few women directors.
This means – as you also know – that it’s very very easy for women directors to be isolated from one another and for traditions of women’s filmmaking to remain partial and fragmented.

I started a casual list on IMDb of women who had directed during the past 10 years, to give me ideas when I was figuring out which women-made films I wanted to see next.
I kept my eye out on Facebook and Twitter for women directors to add to the list.
