Noteworthy Francophone Women Directors: A Sequel is a comprehensive guide that foregrounds the productions of nearly three hundred Francophone women filmmakers from France, Belgium, Switzerland, Latin American, Quebec, and even Thailand. The book begins following films released after the publication of Pallister and Hottell's last volume, Francophone Women Film Directors, in 2005 and stops after the Cannes film festival in 2010.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This sequel by the late Pallister updates information in her Francophone Women Film Directors: A Guide (CH, Jul'05, 42-6218) and the earlier French-Speaking Women Film Directors: A Guide (CH, Jun'98, 35-5563). It is arranged in four chapters: "Feature Films (Fiction)," "Documentaries," "Shorts," and "Sources." An unannotated bibliography, a helpful feature titled "Selected World Festivals," and an index combining personal names and film titles conclude the book. Its strength, as with its predecessors, is its worldwide coverage of little-known French-speaking women film directors, along with their more famous counterparts. Directors are listed alphabetically by name within the first three chapters--an improvement over the multiple geographical listings used in previous editions. The overall structure of the guide is clearer than before. The provision of Internet and hard-to-find print citations for further research is welcome. Readers must remember to use this edition in tandem with earlier ones to get all the information provided. Summing Up: Recommended. * CHOICE *
With special acknowledgment to Agnes Varda for gracious collaboration over the years, and whose self-portrait appears on the cover, this work provides a substantial compendium with selected criticism and useful point of departure for research. * French Review *
