Film Comment’s festival of movies returns in a new extended format in 2020, shining a spotlight on a selection of titles, new and old, curated by the magazine’s editors in special events throughout the year.

New York Premiere · Q&A with Jeffrey PeixotoJeffrey Peixoto’s mesmerizing, wholly original film enters the mindsets of people who have had experiences with Scientology.

Its bewildering end-of-days mood feels ever more apt—and only truly comes to life on the big screen.
