Our exclusive interview with Rajendra Roy, Laurence Kardish and Jytte Jensen of the festival's Selection Committee has some great tidbits from ND/NF's 40-year history and will point you in the direction of some not-to-be-missed films from this year's lineup!
"The first time we rehearsed, I saw all these people in costumes shouting and spitting on the girl. Reality and fiction became confused. The whole day was very hard."
"Making films is physical work, and there is absolutely no guarantee that the end result will be any good, no matter how hard you and your friends try."
On Tuesday's show, director Adam Leon and the stars of Narrative Feature Grand Prize winner (and official ND/NF selection!) "Gimme the Loot" sat down to discuss their film. Other guests included filmmakers from "Starlet," "Tchoutipoulas," "$ellebrity," plus another edition of our critics roundtable.
Heading into Sunday, a whopping 50 of this year's Academy Award nominations belong to movies that played at Film Society this year as part of the 49th New York Film Festival, New Directors/New Films, member and patron screenings, or in runs at our beautiful new Film Center!
