Now celebrating its 47th edition, New Directors/New Films, taking place March 28-April 8, introduces New York audiences to the work of emerging filmmakers from around the world. Throughout its rich, nearly half-century history, New Directors has brought previously little-known talents like Pedro Almódovar, Chantal Akerman, Hou Hsiao-hsien, Christopher Nolan, Laura Poitras, Spike Lee, and Kelly Reichardt to wider audiences. We hope you’ll join us in celebrating a group of filmmakers who represent the present and anticipate the future of cinema: daring artists whose work pushes the envelope and is never what you’d expect. Presented by The Museum of Modern Art and Film Society Lincoln Center.

The 2018 lineup will be announced later this month. Follow ND/NF on Facebook and Twitter for updates. Tickets to the festival will go on sale March 16 at noon, with an early access period for Film Society and MoMA members beginning March 12 at noon.
