Director Quizzes

You can shout 'ACTION!' with the best of them with Sporcle's timed online director quizzes. If you've been a fan of the authors of the silver screen, such as Steven Spielberg or George Lucas, you absolutely have to take some of our awesome film directors quizzes. You can start off simply with our movie directors quiz. When you're ready to move on to the harder stuff, try your hand at the directors by picture trivia game, or even our missing word directors quiz. When you've aced them all, make sure to announce it to everyone in the room with a hearty 'CUT!' just like they do in Hollywood.
