New Directors/New Films 2009

Now in its 38th year, the renowned New Directors/New Films festival, presented jointly by The Film Society of Lincoln Center and The Museum of Modern Art, introduces New York audiences to the work of emerging or not-yet-established filmmakers from around the world. All of the films in New Directors/New Films are having either U.S. or New York premieres, and many of the screenings are introduced by the filmmakers. This year the festival takes place at the Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln Center and at The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 1 at MoMA, where the festival opens on March 25.

A schedule is also available in MoMA’s main and theater lobbies, and in the lobby of the Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln Center. Tickets for New Directors/New Films screenings go on sale March 13 at Lincoln Center, at The Museum of Modern Art, and online.

New Directors/New Films is presented by The Museum of Modern Art and The Film Society of Lincoln Center and is supported by Kenneth Kuchin, The Junior Associates of The Museum of Modern Art, and The Film Society of Lincoln Center Young Friends of Film.

The work of The Film Society of Lincoln Center is made possible by the generous support of the Irene Diamond Fund, 42 Below, Stella Artois, Illy, and public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a State Agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art.
