To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the festival, the Film Society and the 20x24 Project have partnered to host an exhibit in the Furman Gallery, which will consist of influential French filmmakers and talent captured over the course of the last four years at the Film Society. The exhibit will include such notables as Olivier Assayas, agnès b., Isaach De Bankolé, Juliette Binoche, Bertrand Bonello, Catherine Breillat, Claire Denis, Jean Dujardin, Isabelle Huppert, François Ozon, Abderrahmane Sissako, and many more. Photographer Myrna Suarez has been the primary portraitist with occasional guest appearances by Chuck Close and Elsa Dorfman. These images grace the walls of the Elinor Bunin Munroe and Walter Reade theaters year-round, and the collection continues to grow. The exhibit will be up for the entirety of the festival, March 6 – 15, and will be open during regular theater hours.
