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.
