Feb 18 – Mar 3: Film Comment Selects
Now entering its 11th year, this annual showcase of discoveries, special previews, rediscoveries, and films without distribution is handpicked by the editors of Film Comment, America’s leading magazine of film criticism. With a lineup drawn equally from the magazine staff and contributors’ travels on the international film festival circuit, from writing published in the magazine itself, and from overlooked nooks and crannies of film history, this eclectic mix is a perennial can’t-miss first look at the latest and best in cutting-edge film and extreme cinema. Much of this lineup won’t be screening again anytime soon—so come and get it while it’s hot! Info/Tickets >>
