“We are delighted to share this year’s particularly strong Revivals lineup,” said Florence Almozini, FLC Senior Programmer at Large. “The section showcases groundbreaking works by John Carpenter, Mira Nair, Melvin Van Peebles, Nina Menkes, Wendell B. Harris Jr., Michael Powell, and more, in masterful restorations. One of the biggest satisfactions of programming Revivals within this festival is looking back at cinematic treasures of the past and seeing their continuity and relevance with today’s cinema. We think this selection is both a celebration and a thought-provoking adventure, and we hope audiences will enjoy exploring it, whether they are seeing these films for the first or 20th time.”
The Revivals section is programmed by Florence Almozini and Dan Sullivan with program advising by Gina Telaroli.
The 2021 New York Film Festival runs from September 24 through October 10, 2020
