Leading up to this year's Rendez-Vous with French Cinema, we're celebrating post-New Wave, award-winning French filmmaker Patrice Chéreau, who died last October and whose filmmaking spanned over 30 years.
The February 13 event includes a 3D screening of his multiple Oscar-nominated Gravity followed by a conversation with Cuarón moderated by Gavin Smith of Film Comment, plus a screening of his 2006 film Children of Men.
The 19th Rendez-Vous with French Cinema (March 6 - 16) will open with Emmanuelle Bercot's On My Way with star Catherine Deneuve in person, and will close with Bertrand Tavernier's The French Minister. Twenty-four features from established and "next New Wave" filmmakers are set for this year's roster.
The ever-eclectic series features recent work by Hong Sang-soo, Bernardo Bertolucci, Jane Campion, Ti West, and Denis Villeneuve, plus rarely-screened older gems by Christian Petzold, Raúl Ruiz, and much more!
The first batch of titles has been announced for the 43rd New Directors/New Films festival, taking place March 19 - 30 and co-presented by Film Society and the Museum of Modern Art.
The schedule for the 21 film retrospective, Martin Scorsese Presents: Masterpieces of Polish Cinema, was announced by the Film Society of Lincoln Center Monday. The series will open February 5 spotlighting some of Poland's most celebrated filmmakers spanning 1957 - 1987.

Filmmaker Alain Guiraudie made a splash in Cannes and the New York Film Festival with his latest, Stranger By the Lake, which opened at Alice Tully Hall to enthusiastic shouts and hollers for its U.S. Premiere. The French director will be feted with a weeklong survey of his little-seen early work next month.
