An immersive four-day program for filmmakers early in their careers, and the Critics Academy, a workshop for aspiring film writers and a venture of Film Comment magazine.
Special Events will feature Orson Welles’s long-awaited The Other Side of the Wind, finally completed by his collaborators this year, which follows the last night in the life of a legendary Hollywood filmmaker as he completes his final film. That will screen alongside Morgan Neville’s in-depth documentary They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead, which uncovers the fascinating story behind Welles’s last completed film, 50 years in the making.
