To celebrate this year’s 50-year milestone, MoMA and FLC will also present a free virtual retrospective looking back on the festival’s history. In 1972, FLC (formerly the Film Society of Lincoln Center) and MoMA’s Department of Film presented the inaugural New Directors/New Films festival: a modest but eclectic program of 11 films born from a simple desire to share the best new works by emerging international directors with New York moviegoers. Richard Roud, one of the festival’s founding programmers, reflected in the Village Voice then that the festival allows one to “sit down and find out just where, in fact, the New Cinema is going.”
Access this year’s ND/NF virtually nationwide or in FLC theaters!
FLC Virtual Cinema: On sale to the general public on April 16 at noon, with early access for FLC members starting April 13 at noon.
MoMA Virtual Cinema: Free exclusively for MoMA members starting April 28th.
