For your consideration:
Carl Theodor Dreyer

There are probably many directors who could be included. I believe all the directors on the list are dead, so it may make sense to restrict suggestions to other directors who are no longer with us.

Yes Peter. All the directors on the list are dead. I paid attention to this while editing the list, otherwise, many directors must be added.

To me it's a tie between Ingmar Bergman and Akira Kurosawa

Wow, this is a tough choice (which makes for a very good poll). My vote would probably go to Kieslowski but then there's Bergman and Truffaut and Varda... 

FYC:

David Lynch https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000186/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0
Ousmane Sembene https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0783733/?ref_=tt_ov_dr
Claire Denis https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0219136/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0

Peter's suggestion of only deceased filmmakers is a good one; otherwise, the list could get unmanageable. Of the three that I suggested, Lynch and Denis are fortunately still alive but Sembene died some years ago. Sembene would also add some more racial diversity to the list. 

Good poll. : )

FYC:
(all deceased as it is a requirement for the list, although I can't quite comprehend why; maybe noting that in the description and or title more clearly would be of help?..)
Stan Brakhage 
Maya Deren 
Yuri Ilyenko  
Sergei Parajanov
Andy Warhol

Thanks for your suggestions. Maya Deren has already been added to the list. I think adding a note below the description will solve the problem.

This really is a good poll and the decision will still be very difficult.

May I suggest one small edit to the intro?

These directors who shed light on the future of cinema reminded the audience that cinema is an art branch at every opportunity. Which of these memorable art movie directors is your favorite?

(I just took the "s" off of "movies.")

Thanks Nazmi, just one little change more, and this will be ready to be published.

The change you just did in the description needs to also be done in the title.
