…your Bill Cunningham–inspired photo could win you a series pass to New Directors/New Films!
Legendary New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham—now entering his ninth decade and still riding his Schwinn around Manhattan, snapping pictures of the people and events that captivate our city—stands out in a city of dedicated originals. He’s also the subject of the opening night film of New Directors/New Films 2010, jointly presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and MoMA. Now MoMA and FLSC want to give one lucky reader a chance to discover fresh work by emerging filmmakers with a series pass to the festival!
Here’s how it works: You take a picture of your fellow New Yorkers, inspired by Cunningham’s off-the-cuff, street-level style. (Think colorful, spontaneous—cell phone pics welcome!) We’ll pick one at random, and award the lucky photographer a series pass*, plus two tickets to see Bill Cunningham, New York at FLSC on Thursday, March 25.
To enter: Post your picture on the New Directors/New Films Facebook wall (please include the caption “NDNF Contest”) or tweet the URL of your picture to @NDNF using hashtag #ndnfcontest. You must post by midnight EST on Tuesday, March 23.
The winner will be announced at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 24, and on Thursday, March 25, we’ll show a (random) selection of photo submissions here on the blog!
New Directors/New Films, 2010 runs from March 24 to April 4. See the whole line-up here.
*Series pass admits one person to any five screenings in New Directors/New Films except for opening night and closing night screenings. Some restrictions apply.
