Top Future Directing Greats (2017 Edition)

Add header image

Choose file... or enter url:

The 9th Edition of this list

defining the careers of very good directors who have great potential to be among the greats...
(Created by and in the opinion of Stephen H Koontz)

This list includes directors who...
-- Have at least three successful films finished and, preferably, have at least one promising film on the way
-- Have directed full-length features for at least five years.

The more completed quality films (Rated 7/10 or higher) combined with promising films the director has on deck, the higher their rank.

Italicized title indicates unreleased film
Bold title indicates favorite film

Where did some directors move to?


Only one director MOVED UP to Most Accomplished Active Directors 2017:
ALEX GIBNEY

Those who are OUT of the list:
Michel Gondry
- Once a wildly inventive director with films like 'Eternal Sunshine' and 'Science of Sleep' now needs a creative resurgence.
Zack Snyder - He burst on the scene with '300' and directed awe-inspiring scenes in 'Legend of the Guardians' and 'Watchmen' but lately has taken idea of style over substance way too far.

The other two lists in this series for 2017: Best Up-and-Coming Directors (2017)
AND Most Accomplished ACTIVE Directors (2017)
