New York Film Festival's Projections

MUBI Special

We continue our collaboration with the New York Film Festival and its Projections strand, exclusively bringing you highlights from its international selection of film and video work that expand upon our notions of what the moving image can do and be.

Indefinite Pitch

Festival's Projections

We close our series bringing you films from the NYFF’s Projections with this year’s Kazuko Trust Award winner. A provocative Hollywood pitch from an independent Maine filmmaker—told over frozen images of the local landscape—turns into something else: darker, sardonic, self-reflexive and playful.

Foyer

Ismaïl Bahri France, 2016

Festival's Projections

An unconventional film in a series of unconventional cinema fresh from the NYFF’s Projections section. Ismaïl Bahri’s seemingly simple film—reminiscent of Abbas Kiarostami—is a play of light and color tones and rich in diverse conversation over the meaning of filming, tourism, one’s home, and more.

Cilaos

Camilo Restrepo France, 2016

Exclusive

Fresh from the NYFF’s Projection strand of adventurous cinema is something completely unexpected: a micro-scaled musical about the search for a lost father, shot to look like a 1970s blaxploitation, and founded in the religious and cultural practices of the French island of Réunion. Stunning.

Now: End of Season

Ayman Nahle Lebanon, 2015

Festival's Projections

Our next exclusive film fresh from the NYFF’s Projections program is an oblique, observationally rich documentary portrait of Syrian refugees stranded in Turkey. In this limbo a time capsule from the past is heard: President al-Assad trying to reach Reagan on the phone. The impotence of waiting.

Festival's Projections

Straight from the New York Film Festival, we exclusively bring you some of the best of its adventurous and mind-blowing Projections program. We begin with a micro-sized, giddy celluloid satire of the multiplex logos that play before movie screenings—made extra wry streamed rather than projected!

Mad Ladders

Michael Robinson United States, 2015

We’ve long been entranced by the gorgeous, densely woven films of Michael Robinson, which is why we’re pleased to present his latest as part of our spotlight on films from the NYFF’s Projections. Here, Robinson mines TV awards broadcasts and distorts them into a hypnogogic religious ritual.

The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers

Ben Rivers United Kingdom, 2015

Continuing our partnership with the New York Film Festival, we’re showing films selected for Projections, a program that expands our notions of what the moving image can do and be.
