We recently compiled a list of 40 Female Filmmakers to follow on Twitter and asked for suggestions of others to add. The response was overwhelming, so we've expanded the list and opened it up to all filmmakers regardless of gender.

Note that this is not a comprehensive list, nor is it ranked (it's in alphabetical order). In some cases, the filmmakers listed below are also be actresses and/or writers and TV producers, but they have all directed and/or produced films.  You won't find screenwriters, editors or DPs (we'll get to those lists another time). Instead, you'll find documentarians and true indie filmmakers on the list as well as mainstream Hollywood directors.

The only thing they all have in common is that they all have active Twitter presences. We have created a master list so you can follow everyone here (and we're adding filmmakers to that list too, so chime in with suggestions).
