As the 58th New York Film Festival was forced to go mostly virtual last fall, Film at Lincoln Center has announced “Big Screen Summer: NYFF58 Redux” – which will bring some of the 2020’s feature films to local theaters now that movie theaters have reopened.
“This summer, join FLC in the air-conditioned darkness of the Walter Reade Theater and the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center to see 33 titles from NYFF58 writ large in a special series of encore screenings.”
“Big Screen Summer: NYFF58 Redux” will run from June 11 – August 26, launching with a five film anthology by Steve McQueen called Small Axe. Each film “tells a story about London’s West Indian community from the late 1960s to the mid-1980s—including a run of NYFF58 Opening Night selection Lovers Rock.
The revived festival will also features 14 theatrical premieres.
