10 Up-And-Coming POC Filmmakers You Need To Be Paying Attention To


Chloé Zhao

The last POC filmmaker on our list to watch is Chinese filmmaker, Chloé Zhao. She’s another independent writer/director who has impressed the film festival circuit with her early work Songs My Brother Taught Me in 2015 and The Rider in 2017. Zhao struck big when she was hired to make the upcoming Marvel blockbuster, Eternals. The superhero team-up film assembles Angelina Jolie, Kit Harrington, Richard Madden, Gemma Chan, Salma Hayek, Kumail Nanjiani and Brian Tyree Henry for an epic original film that will span thousands of years. Eternals hits theaters on November 5, 2021. Before that, Zhao’s other much smaller project Nomadland, could be an Oscar season contender.
