The Cinema Archives Top 250 Directors

How many of the film directors listed as the 250 best of all time on the website thecinemarchives.com can you name?
As a hint, countries in which the directors were born or lived during the creation of multiple movies are included
Due to a ten-year wait before movies are included on the website's Top 500 films, some modern directors may be lower than expected
