Bath Film Festival is introducing an F rating for films "...which pass some simple tests such as having a female lead who is not simply there to support the male lead, being specifically about women or being directed by a woman."
I think this is great - they are not selecting films specifically based on this, but simply highlighting the discrepancy and, hopefully, opening up the conversation.

[PPS - it is now past my bedtime, so I look forward to seeing what you have come up with in the morning!]
I knew I'd written briefly about something similar. The BFI (British Film Institute) introduced diversity guidelines this summer, to promote women, POC, and PWD in front of and behind the cameras. Add to discussion?
