EFA AWARD FOR INNOVATIVE STORYTELLING
Mark Cousins
for WOMEN MAKE FILM: A NEW ROAD MOVIE THROUGH CINEMA
With this award, the European Film Academy wishes to pay tribute to a ground-breaking documentary produced by Hopscotch Films, a 14-hour odyssey introducing the viewer to many amazing but often overlooked female auteurs of cinema.
 
Using almost a thousand film extracts from thirteen decades and six continents, Mark Cousins asks how films are made, shot and edited; how stories are shaped and how movies depict life, love, politics, humour and death, all through the compelling lens of some of the world’s greatest directors — all of them women.
