Evaluation Presented by The Film Society of Lincoln Center and The Museum of Modern Art, "New Directors/New Films" has earned an international reputation as the foremost forum for film art that breaks and re-makes the cinematic mould. "New Directors/New Films" nurtures directorial talent by creating an invaluable opportunity for that talent to win public support and acceptance. A highly prestigious festival that is watched closely by distributors and critics in the USA. Just like "the big" New York Film Festival every film presented receives a New York Times review which is read by the entire US film community - hence a good review can pave the way for US exhibition, the opposite is also true. The virtual edition reaches out to audiences nationwide.
