Home Library Inclusion in the Director’s Chair: Analysis of Director Gender & Race/Ethnicity Across 1,600 Top Films from 2007 to 2022
Each year, we examine specific demographics (gender, race/ethnicity) of directors across the 100 top domestic fictional films in North America. Directors are singled out in our work as they occupy the top leadership position in movie production. Using Box Office Mojo, we identified the highest earning fictional films released theatrically after excluding documentaries and any other content not constituting a movie. The films were produced locally and abroad and distributed by an array of companies. In total, our longitudinal sample comprised 1,600 films released theatrically from 2007 to 2022.
