This year has seen some unprecedented challenges, as well as historic changes in all facets of filmmaking, distribution, and exhibition. Like many others in the film industry, Film at Lincoln Center has had to adapt in the face of this adversity. One way we’ve done that is with the introduction of our Virtual Cinema, which ensures that excellent films continue to reach you, their deserving audiences, while our physical theaters remain temporarily closed. To celebrate the remarkable movies that have arrived thus far in 2020, we asked the FLC community on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook to share their favorite selections.

We encourage you all to add these deserving films to your watchlist. Selections now playing in the FLC Virtual Cinema include Abel Ferrara’s TommasoBora Kim’s House of Hummingbird, Bruno Dumont’s Joan of Arc, and Kelly Reichardt’s First Cow. Among the picks were also films that recently ended their runs in the Virtual Cinema, including Bacurau, Deerskin, Liberté, Someone, Somewhere, Vitalina Varela, The Whistlers, A White, White Day. And new work by Garrett Bradley, Eliza Hittman, Spike Lee, Tsai Ming-liang, Christian Petzold, and more made the cut. Thank you to everyone who joined the conversation!

Although our theaters are currently closed, our Virtual Cinema and Media Center remain open 24/7. Stay connected to Film at Lincoln Center by joining our online community on InstagramTwitter, or Facebook, and don’t miss a thing by subscribing to the weekly newsletter.

Each film was outstanding in a one-of-a-kind category.
