    NEW DIRECTORS/NEW FILMS 2020 (April 28-May 9, 2021)

    It starts later this year due to the pandemic; the 2020 series was delayed till Dec. This is the 50th anniversary of ND/NF, so there is a retrospective series of selections from early years, including Christopher Nolan's debut, Gregg Araki's, and films by Charles Burnett, Lee Chang-dong, and Chantal Ackerman. The main series is presented "via virtual cinema, with in-person screenings extending through May 13 at FLC" (Lincoln Center; the films are normally shown both at Lincoln Center and MoMA).
