This is my third year creating these lists, and this may be the most exciting one yet...


This list includes directors who...
-- Have at least one successful film finished or at least one promising film on the way
-- Have directed full-length features for less than ten years.

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

* - Indicates a highly anticipated film


The next list is Future Directing Greats 2011

Followed by Most Accomplished ACTIVE Directors 2011


Where did some directors move to?


Those who MOVED UP to Future Directing Greats:
Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz)
Joe Wright (The Soloist)


Those who were KNOCKED OUT from the 2010 List:

Kenneth Lonergan
Charlie Kaufman
Richard Curtis
Ji Woon Kim
Julian Schnabel
Mikael Hafstrom
Sacha Gervasi
