#FemalesinEntertainment: Sofia Coppola Wins Director's Prize at Cannes; Only Second Woman To Do So

Sofia Coppola   From IMDB
Sofia Coppola is to be congratulated for winning this tremendous distinction. She took home the award for Best Director at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. Only one other woman, the Russian director Yuliya Sointseva took it home in the festivals's 70 year history.

This begs the question, why? Is is simply a numbers game because there are so few films directed by women than make it in to Cannes? I certainly hope that this starts a trend. There are a growing amount of women directors making a name for themselves and hopefully this will create larger numbers of films increasing the odds for larger numbers at Cannes.
