NY Cinema. New Directors New Films Festival. March 2013

Now in its 42nd year, the renowned New Directors/New Films festival, presented jointly by The Museum of Modern Art and the Film Society of Lincoln Center, introduces New York audiences to the work of emerging or not-yet-established filmmakers from around the world.

New Directors/New Films 2013 kicks off at MoMA with the opening-night screening of Alexandre Moors’s remarkable debut feature Blue Caprice. Other highlights include Sarah Polley’s autobiographical hybrid documentary Stories We Tell, Joshua Oppenheimer’s award-winning documentary The Act of Killing, and a special MoMA PS1 screening of Sophie Letourneur’s comedy Les Coquillettes.

The festival takes place at the Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln Center and at The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 1 at MoMA.

Selected screenings:

Die Welt

2012. The Netherlands. Directed by Alex Pitstra

In his adventurous debut feature, director Alex Pitstra announces himself as a neo-Tarantino; or to be more precise, the director’s stand-in in the film (played by affable newcomer Abdelhamid Naouara) is a Tarantinoesque, headstrong twenty-something working in a video store. Set in a post–Jasmine Revolution Tunisia, the film follows the young Abdallah as he dreams of leaving behind the video store and his conservative surroundings for the alluring promise of Europe.

North American premiere. Director Alex Pitstra and producer Rosan Breman in person at all screenings

Mar 26, 6:15 p.m., Walter Reade Theater

Mar 28, 8:30 p.m., MoMA Titus 1

Stories We Tell

2012. USA. Directed by Sarah Polley

What is real? What is true? What do we remember, and how do we remember it? Actor/director Sarah Polley turns from fiction to nonfiction, in the process cracking open family secrets. Using home movies, still photographs, and interviews, Polley delves into the life of her mother, a creative yet secretive woman. But while she is talking to her own relatives, Polley’s interest lies in the bigger picture of what families hold onto as truth. Stories We Tell is a delicately crafted personal essay about memory, loss, and understanding.

Mar 29, 6:15 p.m., MoMA Titus 1

Mar 30, 12:30 p.m., Walter Reade Theater


2013. USA. Directed by Shannon Plumb

The Brooklyn mother of two boys and the wife of a harried theater director, Penelope barely has time to stay sane, much less create art. She finds comic relief from domestic drudgery by inhabiting the world in guises—drag king, pole dancer, Santa Claus—managing to find moments of grace even on thankless days. Accomplished video and performance artist Shannon Plumb makes a wincingly funny feature debut that strikes awfully close to home. The writer-director stars opposite her real-life husband (Derek Cianfrance, director of Blue Valentine) and her talented, towheaded sons.

North American premiere. Director Shannon Plumb in person at all screenings

Mar 27, 9:00 p.m., MoMA Titus 1

Mar 30, 8:30 p.m., Walter Reade Theater

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
