53rd New York Film Festival Announces Lineup for “Projections”

The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced today the complete lineup for “Projections” at the Fifty-third New York Film Festival. Taking place the weekend of October 2, the lineup will include fourteen international programs that “draw from experimental narratives, avant-garde poetics, hybrid documentary and ethnographic strategies, and contemporary art practices,” according to organizers.

The program is being curated by Dennis Lim, the director of programming at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, along with Aily Nash, an independent curator, and Gavin Smith, the editor of film comment and senior programmer of the Film Society of Lincoln Center. It features a number of contemporary artists working in film, ranging from Michael Bell-Smith to Hannah Black to Simon Fujiwara to Peggy Ahwesh. (The festival also recently announced the lineup for its “Main Slate” program here.)
