Minority Latter-day Saint Filmmakers

This page lists Latter-day Saint filmmakers who are not white American males. Technically, "minority" may not always be technically accurate, depending on context. Lino Brocka, for example, is listed here because he was not American; he was Filipino. But in the Philippines, where he worked throughout his career, he obviously did not belong to a minority nationality.

There are slightly more female members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints than there are male members, so they aren't technically a "minority" in that sense. But there are more male film directors than women (something that is true for every nationality and every ethnicity, not just for Latter-day Saints), so they are a minority within the profession.

There are more actresses than male actors, and there are many more minority actors among Latter-day Saints than there are directors. Actors are not listed here, but can be found on the Latter-day Saint Film Actors and Latter-day Saints in TV Series pages.

Of course, all Latter-day Saint filmmakers are minorities in an important way, because they are Latter-day Saints, thus belonging to a religious/ethnic minority which makes up only 2% of the U.S. population.

These lists are not complete. Film credits for the people listed on this page can be found on the main page.
