Total Film magazine received our book with enthusiasm, awarding it four stars and saying:

A SENSE OF URGENCY drives contributors to seek out hope for film’s female future in these essays….Aside from correcting discrimination, the call for equality is timely: in troubled economies, the editors note, any less would be “a waste of a country’s human resources”

Cheryl Robson, co-editor of Celluloid Ceiling, attended the Cannes Film Festival, where the topic of women film directors was on everyone’s lips.  The book was widely seen at the festival.
