By Gregg W. Morris – This year’s Main Slate showcases films from 17 different countries, including new titles from celebrated auteurs, extraordinary work from directors making their NYFF debuts, and captivating features that earned acclaim at international festivals.
Highlights include a trio of series featuring special double features: 50th Mixtape, which presents two free films back-to-back every Thursday night, combining all-time and recent favorites of the Film at Lincoln Center programming staff.
The members of 10 juries, reflecting the tone and texture of the annual cultural showcase celebrating storytelling in film, television, virtual reality, music and games, will be tasked with honoring the new works of emerging and established members of the creative community with unique art awards and cash prizes as they present their works at the annual Festival.
“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.”
This year’s series of dispatches from the front lines of nonfiction cinema features intimate portraits of artists, depictions of social upheaval, and much more.
Twenty-one feature documentaries and panel discussions showcasing courageous activists during challenging times. Co-presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and IFC Center June 9-18, 2017.
