Five films in the festival were honored at Cannes, including Hirokazu Kore-eda’s Palme d’Or winner Shoplifters; Jean-Luc Godard’s The Image Book, awarded a Special Palme d’Or; Cold War, which took home the Best Director prize for Paweł Pawlikowski; and Alice Rohrwacher’s Happy as Lazzaro and Jafar Panahi’s 3 Faces, which shared the Best Screenplay award. Other filmmakers to the festival include Nuri Bilge Ceylan, Dominga Sotomayor, Dora García, as well as Bi Gan and Ryûsuke Hamaguchi, both alumni of New Directors/New Films 2016.

With academies during the New York Film Festival and throughout the year, FSLC builds new audiences and continues to advance New York’s vibrant film culture.

 

Projections
