• Testimony to the often overwhelming abundance and variety of cinema today. There are so many interesting films that exist on the periphery of Hollywood hype and festival prestige.

Now in its 17th year, Film Comment Selects continues to offer the kinds of films you won’t see anywhere else in New York. As in the past, we’re pleased to bring you strikingly bold visions and fresh voices, mixing exclusive U.S. premieres of vital new films and long-unseen older titles that deserve the big-screen treatment. The terrific lineup of films in this year’s edition traces important trends in cinema today and follows the work of essential auteurs from around the world. All of the films in our premieres section are titles that have been written about by Film Comment, either in print or online.


Organized by Dan Sullivan and Film Comment magazine staff.
