The 28th edition of the New York African Film Festival (NYAFF) returns with a virtual program celebrating the shared aspirations that drive humanity through time and the voices of the women who push the culture forward while preserving treasured traditions.
Veteran editor, producer, and director Sam Pollard is among cinema’s most dedicated chroniclers of the Black experience in America, moving freely across film and long-form television as well as narrative and documentary for the past four decades.
As World of Wong Kar Wai, the career-spanning retrospective of the Hong Kong auteur, continues its run in our Virtual Cinema, it's hard not to get lost in the beautiful imagery that put the director on the map. We asked the Film at Lincoln Center community, via Instagram and Twitter, for their favorite shots from a Wong Kar Wai film.
With the holidays around the corner and the year winding down, why not review the films that have added moments of levity to an ever-exhausting year? We asked the Film at Lincoln Center community, via Instagram and Twitter, what their favorite first-time watches were this year.
Upcoming releases include New Directors/New Films selection Identifying Features; new restorations of Andrei Tarkovsky’s Mirror and Olivier Assayas’s Demonlover; Lili Horvát’s Preparations to Be Together for an Unknown Period of Time, a mysterious love story inspired by a Sylvia Plath poem; a program of Sam Pollard’s urgent and essential work timed to the release of MLK/FBI (NYFF58); and three beloved annual festivals: the New York Jewish Film Festival, the New York African Film Festival, and Rendez-Vous with French Cinema.
As the rescheduled 49th edition of New Directors/New Films opens this week, take a closer look at the films and filmmakers who represent the present and anticipate the future of cinema with our trailer round-up.
