Now in its 49th edition, the New Directors/New Films festival is New York’s premier showcase for the work of emerging filmmakers from around the world. The list of directors who have shown films at New Directors/New Films over the last near half-century includes such artists as Pedro Almodóvar, Chantal Akerman, Andrea Arnold, Luca Guadagnino, Hou Hsiao-hsien, Kirsten Johnson, Terence Nance, Christopher Nolan, Laura Poitras, Spike Lee, Sarah Polley, Kelly Reichardt, Guillermo del Toro, Joachim Trier, and Denis Villeneuve. Any of the filmmakers in this year’s lineup have the potential to be as important to the art of cinema as these. Join us in celebrating the continued vitality and promise of the medium.
