Film at Lincoln Center: 2024 summer season

RRR, The Stranger and the Fog, North by Northwest, Adieu Philippine, and Moving

Film at Lincoln Center has announced its lineup of festival, repertory, and new release programming for the 2024 summer season, from June through September.

The summer kicks off with FLC’s Summer for the City Outdoor Film Series, presented as part of Lincoln Center’s three-month celebration, which promises to delight and thrill moviegoers with an eclectic selection of five films: Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan (June 13), with Aronofsky in person; Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise (June 20), and, on the occasion of its 20th anniversary, Before Sunset (June 21); S.S. Rajamouli’s RRR (July 11), timed to “India Week,” Summer for the City’s celebration of the beauty and vibrancy of Indian culture; and the comedy satire Dick (July 25), starring Kirsten Dunst and Michelle Williams.

New releases include NYFF61 selections Last Summer, Catherine Breillat’s first feature in a decade with the director in person for a June 26 sneak preview before its June 28 opening; Angela Schanelec’s Music, the story of a young man and woman unknowingly united by the same violent death; and the new restoration of Bahram Beyzaie’s The Stranger and the Fog, a visionary Iranian New Wave drama that was banned for decades, opening exclusively at FLC.

Three new releases from notable FLC festivals this year include: Cédric Kahn’s The Goldman Case, a New York Jewish Film Festival selection and acclaimed pick from the 2023 Cannes Film Festival; Robin Campillo’s Red Island, a highlight of the 2024 Rendez-Vous with French Cinema; and India Donaldson’s Good One, a New Directors/New Films selection and a Sundance Film Festival breakout.

FLC series include Spectacle Every Day: Mexican Popular Cinema, a major showcase of key works from the 1940s–1960s featuring imported films seldom screened in the United States, premieres of new restorations, and more; Isso é Brasil: Cinema According to L.C. Barreto, co-presented with Cinema Tropical, a collection of rarely screened selections celebrating the legendary Brazilian production company’s influence, most of which will premiere in new 4K restorations; and an arguably overdue retrospective dedicated to Jacques Rozier, an unheralded legend of French New Wave cinema.

FLC will present, for three days only, a newly struck 70mm blowup of Alfred Hitchcock’s North by Northwest, his stylish, brilliantly self-parodic espionage thriller, which changed every Hollywood action production in its wake.

Not to be missed is a brand-new 4K restoration of the New York theatrical release of Shinji Sōmai’s Moving; Nathan Silver’s Between the Temples, shot in stunning 16mm by Sean Price Williams and featuring indelible performances by Jason Schwartzman and Carol Kane; the return of the New York Asian Film Festival; and the 62nd New York Film Festival.

FLC programming is led by Florence Almozini, Vice President, Programming, and the team includes Manuel Santini, Senior Manager, Programming; Dan Sullivan, Programmer; Regina Riccitelli, Manager, Programming; Madeline Whittle, Assistant Programmer; Tyler Wilson, Programmer; Katie Zwick, Senior Coordinator, Exhibition & Programming; Cecilia Barrionuevo, Programmer-at-Large; and Claire Diao, Programmer-at-Large.
