After the year Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman was one of the top grossing movies and the #MeToo campaign dominated much industry coverage, it will have surprised few people there were no female directors nominated at the Baftas, nor at the Golden Globes.

We’d like to hear from people working in the film industry about the lack of representation for female filmmakers on the 2018 shortlists so far, ahead of the Academy Award nominations on 23 January.

Are you a woman working in film? How do you think the system should change? What experiences do you have of inequality in the industry? What standout films of the last year by women directors do you feel were worth inclusion on awards long lists?
