New Directors/New Films 2006

Mar 22–Apr 2, 2006


Now in its 35th 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 their New York, US, or North American premieres, and many of the screenings are introduced by the filmmakers themselves.

New Directors/New Films 2006 was organized by a selection committee comprising Mary Lea Bandy, Chief Curator, Laurence Kardish, Senior Curator, and Jytte Jensen, Curator, Department of Film and Media, The Museum of Modern Art; and Marian Masone, Associate Director of Programming, Joanna Ney, Producer, Special Projects, and Richard Peña, Program Director, The Film Society of Lincoln Center.

Sponsored by National Geographic Traveler. The festival is made possible through the generosity of the Julien J. Studley Foundation and the Irene Diamond Fund. Additional support is provided by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and The Junior Associates of The Museum of Modern Art, and with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts.
