Celebrating its 52nd edition, the New Directors/New Films festival showcases a wide-ranging group of films by emerging directors working at the vanguard of cinema. Throughout its history, the festival has presented works by Hou Hsiao-Hsien, Kelly Reichardt, Pedro Almodóvar, Souleymane Cissé, Euzhan Palcy, Jia Zhangke, Spike Lee, Lynne Ramsay, Michael Haneke, Wong Kar Wai, Agnieszka Holland, Ryusuke Hamaguchi, Guillermo del Toro, Luca Guadagnino, and over a thousand others. 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 recognizing the continued vitality and promise of the medium.
