47th Annual New Directors/New Films Festival, March 28–April 8, Film Society of Lincoln Center and The Museum of Modern Art

“The purpose of New Directors/New Films is to seek out emerging filmmakers who are working at the vanguard of cinema,” said Film Society Director of Programming Dennis Lim. “This is as diverse and wide-ranging a lineup as we’ve assembled in years: full of pleasures and provocations and, above all, surprises – proof that film remains a medium ripe for reinvention in ways big and small.”
