The 49th annual New Directors/New Films celebrates filmmakers who represent the present and anticipate the future of cinema, and whose daring work pushes the envelope in unexpected ways. Rescheduled from March for December 9-20, all films are available nationwide for the first time ever via the FLC Virtual Cinema.
Celebrating its 49th edition in 2020, the New Directors/New Films festival introduces New York audiences to the work of emerging filmmakers from around the world. Throughout its rich, nearly half-century history, New Directors has brought previously little-known talents like Spike Lee, Chantal Akerman, Wong Kar-wai, Steven Spielberg, Claire Denis, Pedro Almodóvar, Guillermo del Toro, Christopher Nolan, Marielle Heller, Hirokazu Kore-eda, Kelly Reichardt, Charles Burnett, Lynne Ramsay, Lee Chang-dong, Yorgos Lanthimos, Mia Hansen-Løve, Bi Gan, Michael Haneke, and Hou Hsiao-hsien to wider audiences.
A 20% discount is being offered to UnionDocs members and subscribers with the promo code: NDNF20.
