Commets: 0

Ava DuVernay, the acclaimed filmmaker behind projects like “When They See Us” and “Selma,” recently made history as the first Black female U.S. director to have a feature in the main competition at the Venice Film Festival. This is just one of many milestones in DuVernay’s career. She was the first African-American woman to win Best Director at the Sundance Film Festival in 2012 for her film “Middle of Nowhere,” and she was the first Black woman to be nominated for Best Director at the Golden Globes for “Selma” in 2014. In 2018, DuVernay became the first Black woman to direct a $100 million film with “A Wrinkle in Time.” With a range of acclaimed projects like “Queen Sugar” and “When They See Us,” DuVernay continues to be a trailblazer in the industry.
