The 10th Edition of this list

defining the somewhat young careers of very good directors who have potential to be a formidable director among the greats of the industry...
(Created by and in the opinion of Stephen H Koontz)

This list includes directors who...
-- Have at least one successful film finished and/or at least one promising film on the way
-- Have directed quality (rated 7/10) full-length features, that I've seen, for ten years or less.

The more promising films the director has on deck, the higher their rank.
But of course the quality in films they've completed is more important.

Italicized title indicates unreleased film


The other two lists in this series: Future Directing Greats (2018)
AND Most Accomplished ACTIVE Directors (2018)


Where did some directors move to?


Those who MOVED UP to Future Directing Greats:
MARTIN MCDONAGH
VALERIE FARIS/JON DAYTON
MIKE MILLS
SHANE BLACK
TAIKA WAITITI
GASPAR NOE

Those who were KNOCKED OUT from the List
