Film Comment’s movie showcase returns in its 18th edition with a selection of titles curated by the magazine’s editors, offering strikingly bold visions, mixing New York premieres of new films and long-unseen older titles that deserve the big-screen treatment. It’s a festival The New York Times called “a combination of under-the-radar art house entries and idiosyncratic revivals that reliably deliver an atmosphere of cutting-edge eclecticism.” Synopses below written by Film Comment contributors.

Organized by Madeline Whittle and Film Comment magazine staff.


With the kind support of the Consulate General of Switzerland in New York and Swiss Films. Special thanks to Manuela Papatakis.
