#Fact
1 Older sister of Jina DuVernay.
2 She is the first black female director to be nominated for a Golden Globe Award. She received the nomination for her film Selma (2014).
3 In June 2013, she was invited to join both the director's and writer's branches of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. She is only the second black woman, following Kasi Lemmons, to be invited to the director's branch.
4 In 2012, she became the first African American woman to win the Best Director Prize at Sundance Film Festival. She won the award for her second feature, Middle of Nowhere (2012).
5 Founder of AFFRM, the African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement.

#Quote
1 [on filming 'Selma' in the same area of Alabama where she grew up] I never approached it as, 'Oh my God, I'm making a film about Mr. King'. I just focused on making a film about an ordinary man doing extraordinary things in a place I know very well.
2 We're told that independent film lovers... folks that are used to watching art house films, won't come out and see a film with black people in it - I've been told that in rooms, big rooms, studio rooms, and I know that's not true.
3 Positive characterizations are complex characterizations. That's all we need to know. They shouldn't be saccharine. They shouldn't feel like medicine.
4 I didn't go to film school. I got my education on the set as a niche publicist in the film industry.
5 You know, often films that are deemed positive, nobody wants to see them.
6 I tell the stories that are of interest to me.
7 I think that women definitely have a special bond as friends that is hard to describe to men, and we don't often see that portrayed narratively.
8 I think for female filmmakers a big issue is making their second and third films.
9 I just don't think there's a lot of support for the woman's voice in cinema, and it becomes really difficult to raise that money and start again every time.
10 I really admire Werner Herzog and Spike Lee. They're amazing documentarians. If you took away all the narratives, they'd just be amazing documentarians.
11 I think good publicists are just like good mommies - always looking out, making sure folks are comfortable and making sure that folks are on time and making sure that folks are getting what they need and know what they need to do.
12 I've been to Sundance eight times as a publicist and thought I was very prepared. I mean, who could've been more prepared for me? A publicist who's been there eight times. Getting there as a filmmaker was a completely surreal, different, unexpected experience.
13 As long as you're in an environment where the worth of the project isn't based on the project but what its predecessors did, it's not truly inclusive.
14 I didn't start out thinking that I could ever make films. I started out being a film lover, loving films, and wanting to have a job that put me close to them and close to filmmakers and close to film sets.
15 I make films about black women and it doesn't mean that you can't see them as a black man, doesn't mean that he can't see them as a white man or she can't see them as a white woman.
16 I don't understand the iPhone. I just don't get it. Don't ya'll have to write serious emails throughout the day? How can you possibly manage detailed missives on a phone with no keys?
17 All the traditional models for doing things are collapsing; from music to publishing to film, and it's a wide open door for people who are creative to do what they need to do without having institutions block their art.
18 I think that if we really want to break it down, that non-black filmmakers have had many, many years and many, many opportunities to tell many, many stories about themselves, and black filmmakers have not had as many years, as many opportunities, as many films to explore the nuances of our reality.
19 Filmmakers need to realize that their job isn't done when they lock picture. We must see our films through.
20 All the films I do, I write the scripts, I direct.
21 I wish I could be the black woman Soderbergh, and put the camera on my shoulder and shoot beautifully while I directed.
22 In documentaries, there's a truth that unfolds unnaturally, and you get to chronicle it. In narratives, you have to create the situations so that the truth will come out.
23 I think I am a little jealous of women who have great girlfriends as adults.
24 If you're doing something outside of dominant culture, there's not an easy place for you. You will have to do it yourself.
25 I'm a prison abolitionist because the prison system as it is set up is just not working. It's horrible.
26 When I'm marketing a film, whether its mine or someone else's, I work with a great deal of strategy and elbow grease until the job is done.
27 Film school was a privilege I could not afford.
28 Be passionate and move forward with gusto every single hour of every single day until you reach your goal.
