#DirectedByWomen Streaming Additions on Hulu, Amazon Prime, HBO Now, and Netflix for March 2019

[Ed. note: You can find The Celluloid Void's complete list of 400+ streaming women-directed films here.]

I’m not going to lie—I’d much rather head to a video store and rent a movie (or go to a repertory screening) rather than watching it at home. But I also subscribe to most of the major streaming services and am always keeping tabs on which ones are making an effort to feature films that are directed by women. And being able to stream things at home means making a whole lot more progress on my #52filmsbywomen resolution for 2019.

So what’s new for March 2019? I’m especially excited to get to watch Desiree Akhavan’s THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON POST, coming to HBO Now on March 20. (I missed that at Outfest and in theaters, and I’ve never stopped regretting it.) If you haven’t seen Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi’s Oscar-winning 2018 documentary, FREE SOLO, you can get on that thanks to Hulu beginning March 13. And obviously there’s no bad time to watch Jane Campion’s THE PIANO, on Hulu as of March 1.

Stay tuned; I’ll be doing something similar in coming months to highlight streaming films written by women.
