In his unprecedented tenure as the Film Society’s Program Director and Selection Committee Chair of the New York Film Festival, Richard Peña has upheld the organization’s gold standard for showcasing the best in world cinema, while dramatically expanding its—and, in turn, the audience’s—horizons. From his encyclopedic surveys of Italian Neorealism and pre-revolutionary Iranian cinema, to major career retrospectives of directors Michelangelo Antonioni, Sacha Guitry and Satyajit Ray, Peña’s inexhaustible knowledge and insatiable appetite for undiscovered cinematic territory have been an ongoing gift to New York moviegoers for the better part of three decades. During that same time, he has overseen the Film Society’s expansion from an annual festival to a year-round film exhibitor with three screens and a rapidly expanding online presence. As his final NYFF draws to a close, please join us for this gala tribute to a true visionary, featuring special guest speakers, film clips, and many other surprises!
