?The problem with this list, as is often the case, is that women filmmakers are written out of the 'canon'. Please include Maya Deren! (as per Vicky Smith's post)

Three is a severe limitation, but if you insist, one way to get at it is to start not with films but with major traditions since mid-century and select exemplary works within them. So for example abstract (Brakhage), minimalist (Warhol, Wavelength), essayistic (Marker, Farocki, Forgacs). I include Brakhage's lens-captured films in the problematic "abstract."
