Eleven films are confirmed to start their theatrical runs at Film Society in the coming months, including both parts of Lars von Trier's salacious new film and Jim Jarmusch's NYFF51 hit Only Lovers Left Alive.
Another season of "Through Our Eyes: Three Decades of EVC Youth Documentaries" is on tap at Film Society. The third installment of the award-winning retrospective series created by teens is slated to begin March 4.
Opening the fest is Ana Lily Amirpour's A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, while Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard's unconventional Nick Cave "documentary" 20,000 Days On Earth will close out the event, which runs March 19 - 30 at the Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Museum of Modern Art.
The eight-day retrospective, Permanent Vacation: The Films of Jim Jarmusch (April 2 - 10), includes all 11 of his features, a selection of short films and music videos, and the theatrical release of Only Lovers Left Alive.
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!
